M-17E - Systematic Review

In this one day workshop, participants will be introduced to the concept of systematic reviews of animal studies. Both the advantages and the limitations of systematic reviews will be discussed. Moreover, participants will get the opportunity to actually practice the steps of which systematic reviews typically consist. Through this practical experience they will get a good idea about the added value of systematic reviews and about the possibilities and efforts needed for conducting such a review in their own field of research. This course will be conducted in cooperation with colleagues from SYRLCE (SYstematic Review Centre for Laboratory animal Experimentation, part of the Central Animal Laboratory of the Radboud University Medical Center, The Netherlands).
