Interdisciplinary Applications of Conducting Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses

The first workshop for 2022 will be a 1-day workshop focused on conducting systematic reviews and meta-analyses. This workshop is run in association with the University of Sydney and is funded via a 2021 USYD Student Life Co-curricular Grant received by Sarah A. Walker.

The first, in association with the University of Sydney, will be a 1-day workshop focused on conducting systematic reviews and meta-analyses.

The workshop will be a “hands on” demonstration of conducting a review from start through to completion. We will use an existing published dataset (which will be emailed to you after registration). The statistical component of the meta-analysis practical demonstration will use two different platforms: (1) R-statistics with Dr Kit Double; and (2) Meta-essentials with Associate Professor Carolyn MacCann – these two sessions will run simultaneously between 2:30 and 4pm.
