Systematic Reviews

10 credits at Level 7

Module leader: Dr Catriona McDaid


Health policy, clinical and public health practice should be informed by the available evidence. Systematic reviews or evidence syntheses are comprehensive, rigorous and critical summaries of the available research evidence on a specific topic. Relevant studies are systematically identified, their data extracted and synthesised in narrative form and, where appropriate, statistically using meta-analysis, taking care to minimise error and bias. This module provides students with appropriate knowledge and training required for finding, interpreting and conducting systematic reviews including meta-analysis.
