These videos, originally part of the RoB 2: Learning Live webinar series, discuss good practice in reporting of reviews using RoB 2. Common issues are addressed and exemplar reviews are presented. The presenters also demonstrate how RevMan Web is used to present the results of RoB 2 assessments and how the final product will look in the Cochrane Library.
This session was intended for people who are interested in undertaking a systematic review using RoB 2, or who are actively developing a protocol for a review or working on a review that intends to use RoB 2. In addition to review author teams, CRG editors and methodologists can learn about editorial considerations and good practice.
The webinar was delivered in January 2021 and below you will find the videos from the webinar, together with accompanying slides to download [PDF].
