Comprehensive Systematic Review Training Program (CSRTP)

This Joanna Briggs Systematic Review Training Program is designed to prepare researchers and clinicians to develop, conduct and report comprehensive systematic reviews of evidence using the Joanna Briggs Institute SUMARI software.


Systematic review training course has been undertaken by over 1300 participants from over 35 countries and continues to be our most successful educational offering. The full, comprehensive, five-day program covers three Modules.


Module 0001 is compulsory and covers the first steps in the systematic review process "generic" to all reviews - Question development, development of the review protocol, search strategy, searching and study selection. The remaining two Modules each build on this steps and are specific to the type of evidence the review question is addressing - quantitative (Module 0002) or qualitative and/or text and opinion (Module 0003). Modules 0002 and 0003 of the program begin with in-depth investigation of critical appraisal of the retrieved evidence, data abstraction and ultimately methods of meta-synthesis (qualitative) and meta-analysis (quantitative) of the extracted data.


Throughout the program there are practical sessions designed to familiarize participants with each step of the systematic review process, including sessions to become proficient in the use of the JBI software package (JBI SUMARI) to facilitate the production of a JBI review.
