Systematic Reviews of Diagnostic Studies: Vienna, Austria

Cochrane Austria, Cochrane Netherlands and the Cochrane Screening and Diagnostic Test Methods Group organise this two-day workshop on “Systematic Reviews of Diagnostic Studies”.

Participants will learn to define the diagnostic 'journey' of a patient with a particular health problem (including the role of tests), formulate clear diagnostic questions and identify and appraise diagnostic test accuracy studies. They will be introduced into the principles of meta‐analysis, so that they are able to understand and interpret diagnostic meta‐analyses. Participants will also learn how to prepare a GRADE Summary of Findings Table for summarising the results of a diagnostic systematic review. Cochrane and GRADE guidance for preparing a systematic review of diagnostic test accuracy will be followed.
