Enhancing the QUAlity and Transparency Of health Research
The Canadian Cochrane Centre are holding a free webinar on Reporting Guidelines for Equity-Focused Systematic Reviews – PRISMA-E 2012.
Presented by Vivian Welch and Jennifer O’Neill from the Campbell and Cochrane Equity Methods Group participants will learn about new reporting guidelines for systematic reviews with an equity focus: those with interventions that target disadvantaged populations, are aimed at reducing social gradients across populations, or are likely to have important effects on equity. The newly published equity-extension checklist (PRISMA-E 2012) for systematic reviews will be introduced and discussed and participants will be asked to provide ideas and feedback regarding dissemination and knowledge translation strategies.
The webinar will be held on Tuesday 11 December 2012, at 1200 Toronto time. It will last one hour and will be conducted in English.
