Searching and Review Clinics

Who can attend? 

The clinics are designed for academics and health/social care professionals who are currently undertaking or planning to undertake a systematic review. We offer appointments to professionals based in organisations in Devon, Cornwall or Somerset.  

What will I learn? 

What you get out of the session depends on what your query is. When booking an appointment you will need to state whether you want to see an information specialist or reviewer. In order to help you make that decision here are some general areas that we can help with: 

Information Specialist: informing search strategies, using Endnote as your reference library, managing your references, searching databases effectively, using local resources. 

Systematic Reviewer: developing your protocol, describing the systematic review process, guidance on screening, data extraction and quality assessment (critical appraisal) and synthesis. 

If you wish to see both a reviewer and an information specialist, we would recommend booking two consecutive appointments at the same clinic where possible, to allow sufficient time to cover your enquiry in detail.

How to book:

Book directly from our Eventbrite page, or by selecting from the dates listed below (please note that booking links from this page may not work on a mobile phone).

N.B. We have had some confusion lately over the clinic times displayed on the Eventbrite pages, compared with the time of your individual appointment on the automated email you will receive from Eventbrite once you have booked.  Please note that the time of your actual appointment will be the time you selected when booking.  This will also be shown on your confirmation email as the “ticket type”, e.g.” Session 1: 11:30 – 12:00″.  We will send you a calendar invite for this time with the meeting link 1-2 days before your appointment, so if you are booking well in advance, you may wish to make a note of the time in your calendar yourself in order to avoid any later diary clashes.
