While the literature search is likely to be the main responsibility of information professionals involved in systematic review projects, there are other aspects of these projects that would benefit from our input.

The session will focus on best practices and standards (including PRISMA, Cochrane, and Institute of Medicine), communication with team members, and appropriate reporting of methodology. 1.5 MLA CE Contact Hours
