An Introduction to meta-analysis

Systematic reviews and meta-analyses are critical for evidence-based clinical and public health practice. The widespread and growing application of systematic reviews to synthesize evidence on key research and clinical questions makes it useful for health professionals to be able to understand and critique this research design. 

This workshop will provide a detailed description of the systematic review process and provide step-by-step guidance on how to perform a systematic review and a meta-analysis.
