Online courses

From July 17-19, 2024 the online summer school 'Prognosis Research in Healthcare: Concepts, Methods and Impact' will be organized by Keele University, UK. This 3-day summer school is designed to introduce the key components and uses of prognosis research to health professionals and researchers, including: a framework of four different prognosis research questions: overall prognosis, prognostic factors, prognostic models, and stratified care; key principles of study design and methods; interpretation of statistical results about prognosis; the use of prognosis research evidence at multiple stages on the translational pathway toward improving patient outcome; the limitations of current prognosis research, and how the field can be improved. More information can be found here.

In fall 2024, a 3-day online workshop targeted at people who wish to learn how to summarise evidence of prognosis studies in a (Cochrane) review will be facilitated. In this three-day workshop we discuss and practice how to define your prognosis review question, how to search the literature, how to critically assess the quality of primary prognosis studies, which statistical methods to use for a meta-analysis of the results of primary prognosis studies, how to use these methods and how to interpret and report the findings. More information can be found here.

We have launched an online 60-minute interactive module on Systematic review of prognosis studies that can be followed for **free** via the Cochrane Training website. The module is intended for researchers and clinicians with an interest in reading a systematic review of prognosis studies or as an introductory course for researchers planning to perform one.

Face-to-face courses

From June 10-14, 2024, we will facilitate a 5-day face-to-face workshop on systematic review and meta-analysis of prognosis studies in Utrecht, Netherlands. The course will cover all review steps from formulating the reviews question to meta-analysis of the results. Click here for more information.
