The Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) Comprehensive Systematic Review Training Program enables participants to learn how to conduct robust systematic reviews of different evidence types in order to provide the strongest possible evidence to inform decision making or clinical guidelines in health care.
We invite you to participate in the world-class systematic review training program, which incorporates both theory and hands-on experience. Throughout the program, you will learn how to develop a focused question, search for relevant literature, appraise and synthesize evidence arising from research. By the end of the program, you will have a completed protocol and be ready to commence your review!
Participants who successfully complete the program can become Certified Reviewers. Certified Reviewers are accredited for a period of two years as authors in the JBI Database and Implementation Reports (JBISRIR), a refereed online journal, the content of which is indexed in Embase, Scopus, Mosby's Index (Elsevier), CINAHL (EBSCO) and MEDLINE.
