Hone your skills in creating impactful systematic reviews of non-research evidence (expert opinion reports and policy documents)

Systematic reviews of non-research evidence are a powerful tool for gaining a comprehensive synthesis of the state of knowledge on a policy and/or practice question. They are particularly relevant to health and medical researchers, especially when the review question is unlikely to be answered by research literature, especially when the area of study is very new, or it concerns health policy, health services or health systems, and the only available evidence is from experts’ opinion, policy recommendations or other non-peer reviewed sources.

The NHMRC Partnership Centre for Health System Sustainability and NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence in Digital Health are hosting a one-day workshop to demonstrate how to create impactful Systematic Reviews of Non-Research Evidence (Expert Opinion Reports & Policy Documents).

Dr Catalin Tufanaru – preeminent academic on systematic reviews, with 10 years of experience and expertise in conducting reviews and in teaching, peer-reviewing, and providing methodological guidance on systematic
Associate Professor Yvonne Zurynski – Australia’s first associate professor for health system sustainability and a health service researcher and evaluator
