Penang Medical College, Penang, Malaysia

This 3-day workshop organised by Cochrane Malaysia on Developing a Protocol for a Cochrane Systematic Review is for individuals that are in the process of or are considering authoring a Cochrane systematic review. It is most suited to authors who already have a registered title, but authors who have not yet identified a title will also benefit from the course and will be given assistance to develop a title.

Course outline

This is a three-day course. It begins with an introduction to the Cochrane Collaboration and a brief overview of the format of a protocol for a systematic review. A mixture of presentations and small group activities gives participants the opportunity to develop and refine their own protocols. This workshop also covers formulating clinical questions, locating studies, appraising risk of bias and writing the methods section of a protocol.
