TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO SYSTEMATIC REVIEW AND META-ANALYSIS
Really excellent information. Would have appreciated more basic discussion of statistical concepts, or a link to resources for those not as familiar with them or without a background in epidemiology.
This is a good introductory course to how and why systematic reviews are performed. I would have liked to have one assignment at the end to try and apply it ourselves but all in all great course !
