Practical Skills for Reviewing Evidence in Health Professions Education

24-25 August 2019
Vienna, Austria


This course has been designed to present and develop a set of core skills that are key in using and undertaking systematic reviews in the healthcare professions. These will include: developing relevant topics for review; considering and selecting appropriate methods for review and synthesis of evidence; searching and appraising research; synthesising studies; writing up a review in a manner that can impact practice and using and peer reviewing of education reviews. The focus will be on systematic reviewing using a diverse range of synthesis methodologies, including descriptive, justification and clarification reviews that will include potentials for quantitative, narrative and qualitative methodologies. We will also consider other methodologies gaining prominence in the field that can be completed within a systematic framework, including scoping reviews and realist reviews


The Course is designed for all healthcare professionals interested in planning, implementing and reporting a systematic review as well as those interested in reviewing/managing a systematic review. Whilst the Course draws on experience gained with the Best Evidence Medical Education (BEME) Collaboration, it is appropriate for a wider audience and will consider other forms of evidence review and synthesis within education that can be performed within a systematic framework and published numerous outputs.  

Post-course Assignment

Participants may choose to submit, within six months of completion of the course, a protocol for their own review, or appraisal of a published review. If completed to a successful standard, award of the PASREV Certificate will be made.
