An intermediate 4-day course introducing and practicing the concepts of systematic reviewing and conducting a meta-analysis using R.Systematic review and meta-analysis are techniques used to synthesize and summarize large bodies of research literature. Compared to results from a single primary study, results from a meta-analysis provide greater generalizability, increased precision, and the ability to explore heterogeneity across studies. You will use the latest techniques and technical tools to conduct a high-quality systematic review and meta-analysis. You will learn hands-on, practical, and applied approaches to conducting reviews by combining lectures with practice material designed to enable you to conduct future meta-analyses.
