Types of Reviews

Wednesday 24 January 2018, 1-3pm

Peninsula Allied Health Centre FF16

Are you about to embark on a systematic review? Are you sure? There are many other types of review, such as a rapid review, mapping review or scoping review, and one of these may be a better fit for your requirements. In this seminar, we will describe some of the review methodologies that are available and discuss how they differ from the better known 'systematic review'.

In this informal seminar, Lorna Burns and Amanda Wanner will discuss a variety of literature review types.

The talk will focus on a body of work that I have conducted as part of three international research collaboration – Cochrane Priority Setting Methods group, REWARD collaboration and Evidence based Research Network. I have done methods work on the underlying evidence on research priority setting methods, how the Cochrane collaboration makes decision on setting priority setting for Cochrane reviews and how funders address the reduce research waste. The latter included evaluation of their research priority setting exercise and whether they use systematic reviews as part of this process.

The ConQUAL Approach

Tuesday 1 May 2018, 1-3pm

Peninsula Allied Health Centre FF16

Presented by Anna Lloyd

This informal presentation will provide an overview of the background to the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) ConQual approach, which aims to establish confidence in the output of qualitative research synthesis. The main focus of the talk will be to guide the group through the practical application of the approach using the example of a recent systematic review, and encourage discussion around this topic.

Anna has also worked with the University to complete an NIHR Internship as part of a Clinical Academic Training Programme; part of which involved conducting a systematic review of qualitative research using the JBI meta-aggregative approach.
