Selección de estudios: trainers' materials

Descripción

This set of training materials about selecting studies for inclusion in a systematic review can be used in your workshops and adapted to your needs. 

After the literature search is run, the next step is to carefully screen the results to identify those studies that will be included in the review. This presentation gives guidance on selecting included studies using pre-specified eligibility criteria.  The presentation also introduces the PRISMA Statement and accompanying flowchart, which sets out good practice for reporting results of a search for a systematic review.

These resources have been translated into several languages. Select an available language from the list at the top right of this page.

The exercise uses a sample checklist of eligibility criteria for a hypothetical review on ‘Caffeine for daytime drowsiness’.

A downloadable content map includes references for trainers as to where accompanying material is available (such as reference to appropriate sections in the Cochrane Handbook).

The policy on using standard training materials is available here.
