HSLib Staff Participate in Webcast on Systematic Reviews

Yesterday members of the Health Sciences Library staff participated in the Medical Library Association’s professional development webcast titled: “Librarians Collaborating to Produce systematic reviews: Project Launch to Publication”. Four speakers addressed different aspects of systematic reviews, including key characteristics, review types, resources & tools needed to conduct a review, and standards & guidelines for creating reviews. Systematic reviews are an important aspect of evidence-based medicine, and are the gold standard for healthcare decision-making.

The Health Sciences Library can help JABSOM & UH-affiliated faculty, staff, and students scope out their systematic reviews. For more information please contact the Health Sciences Library or visit the Information Services Desk during our public hours.
