Demand for evidence synthesis to inform practice, policy and research agendas has grown exponentially over the last three decades. In response, systematic review methods have evolved to meet the increasingly diverse types of questions that systematic review methods are being used to address.
An evidence synthesis approach that has emerged and is increasingly being used are mapping review and evidence gap maps (EGMs). These are new tools, which complement existing approaches in the family of systematic methods of reviewing evidence. Typically, they seek to address a broader research question, where multiple types of intervention may be evaluated, such as preterm bi
What does the course deliver?
This 1-day short course provides an introduction to mapping reviews and EGMs, outlines the gap-map methodology, and presents some examples. Objectives
The purpose of this one-day short course is to introduce attendees to mapping reviews and EGMs, how they differ from other systematic reviews, examples of how they are used, methods, and how to produce an EGM.
The course will consist of a mixture of presentations and an interactive exercise, with an opportunity for participants to work on developing the framework for an EGM.
