Event description
This course covers the steps involved in conducting systematic reviews of primary qualitative research following Cochrane methods

About this Event

Qualitative evidence synthesis (QES), or systematic reviews of primary qualitative research, are becoming more common both within and outside Cochrane. The methods for undertaking these reviews are now well developed. Findings from QES are increasingly used in decision making processes, including to inform the development of clinical, health system and social welfare recommendations (e.g. by WHO, NICE) and to inform decisions across a wide range of public health and other areas.

This 1.5-day course will introduce and detail QES: what it is, how its findings can be applied, methodological steps in conducting a QES and how to assess and describe the level of confidence to place in QES findings (GRADE-CERQual approach). The GRADE-CERQual approach is now recommended for all Cochrane qualitative evidence syntheses. We will use presentations, small groups, and illustrate material using applied examples.

Target audience: reviewers working on systematic reviews of qualitative evidence.
