JBI Systematic Review course


At its core, JBI is concerned with improving health outcomes in communities globally by promoting and supporting the use of the best available evidence to inform decisions made at the point of care.

The JBI Comprehensive Systematic Review Training Program (CSRTP) is a 3-day program for researchers and clinicians who want to understand the principles of evidence-based healthcare (module 1) or who want to develop, conduct and report systematic reviews in order to provide the strongest possible evidence to inform decision making or clinical guidelines in healthcare (module 3).

By the end of the program participants complete a protocol and are ready to commence their systematic review.

Participants who successfully complete the program can become Certified Reviewers, accredited for a period of two years as authors in the JBI Evidence Synthesis, a peer-reviewed journal with impact factor, a refered online journal, the content of which is indexed in Embase, Scopus, Mosby's Index (Elsevier), CINAHL (EBSCO) and MEDLINE.
