The Center and its faulty are committed to providing the tools and knowledge required for the conduct and interpretation of systematic review and meta-analysis, the fundamental tools of evidence-based practice.  

Customized Workshops

We frequently lead a basic "Introduction to Systematic Reviews" course, as well as more advanced courses in meta-analysis, network meta-analysis and risk of bias.  If your organization would be interested in this kind of training, please contact us so that we can assess your needs and custom-design a training for you.
