Risk of Bias 2 (ROB2) workshop - Penang, Malaysia

This workshop, organised by Cochrane Malaysia, will include a mixture of presentations, small group activities, and a facilitated discussion covering the following topics:

  1. assessing risk of bias in results of randomized trials using the recently developed RoB 2 tool
  2. issues in the roll-out and implementation of the RoB 2 tool in Cochrane
  3. awareness of ROBINS-I tool for assessing risk of bias in non-randomized studies of interventions
  4. awareness of upcoming tools for assessing risk of bias due to missing results in a synthesis (ROB-ME)
  5. awareness of how the different tools are linked and the systems being developed to streamline their use

Although the workshop focuses on the use of these tools for Cochrane authors it is open to anyone interested in assessing risk of bias for systematic reviews.
