Forthcoming training event:
4-5 April 2018 in Vienna
Cochrane Austria, Cochrane Netherlands and the Cochrane Screening and Diagnostic Test Methods Group organise a two-day workshop:
Systematic reviews of diagnostic studies
In this two‐day workshop participants learn to define the diagnostic 'journey' of a patient with a particular health problem (including the role of tests), formulate clear diagnostic questions and identify and appraise diagnostic test accuracy studies. They will be introduced into the principles of meta‐analysis, so that they are able to understand and interpret diagnostic meta‐analyses. The participants will also learn how to prepare a GRADE Summary of Findings Table for summarising the results of a diagnostic systematic review. We will follow Cochrane and GRADE guidance for preparing a systematic review of diagnostic test accuracy.
Date: Wednesday 4th to Thursday 5th of April 2018
