Are you a researcher or practitioner working on program design or evaluation? Would you like a better understanding of Systematic Reviews? Are you interested in Implementation Science?

Join the MAP Centre for Urban Health Solutions at St. Michael’s Hospital for their workshop: The role of systematic reviews in intervention research. The event is free and will take place on Thursday January 22, 2021 12 PM  – 1:30 PM  Eastern time.

The workshop will be run by Dr. Alexa Yakubovich. She leads an interdisciplinary research program that aims to advance a structural understanding of interpersonal violence and related health inequities, with a particular focus on intimate partner violence. Dr. Yakubovich currently holds a CIHR Health System Impact Fellowship and CIHR-CMHC Fellowship in Research and Knowledge Translation in Urban Housing and Health as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the MAP Centre for Urban Health Solutions at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto. She received her MSc and PhD in Evidence-Based Social Intervention and Policy Evaluation at the University of Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar and CIHR-funded researcher.

This workshop will introduce participants to the key concepts and techniques behind systematic reviews applicable to a diversity of research and practice questions. Material will cover:

  • Quantitative and qualitative systematic reviews;
  • Answering research questions ranging from what are the likely causes of health and social problems to the impacts and experiences of programs and policies;
  • How to produce and use systematic review evidence to inform the design, evaluation, and implementation of public health and social care programming and policy.

Participants will learn about each step in the review process, with opportunity to practice some of these steps, and how to critically appraise existing systematic reviews that use different methods.
