Course Description: This is a graduate-level course for the preparation of the doctoral level student in the healthcare sciences. Systematic reviews are useful for evidence-based clinical practice and the development of healthcare science. Systematic reviews (SR) are a complex undertaking and involve multiple steps to produce a quality systematic review. The widespread and growing application of systematic review methods for the synthesis of evidence on important or pressing research and clinical questions underscore the need for healthcare professionals to understand and critique this research design. Developing a protocol to guide the systematic review is a critical step. This course will provide a detailed description of the systematic review process, discuss the strengths and limitations of the method, and provide step-by-step guidance on how to develop a protocol and perform a systematic review based on the methodology developed by the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI).
