Event Details

Organised by Evidence Synthesis Ireland and Cochrane Ireland, this workshop on systematic searching will be delivered over 2 days by Carol Lefebvre. Carol Lefebvre is an independent information consultant and was previously the Senior Information Specialist at the UK Cochrane Centre from 1992 to 2012. She now focuses on teaching and consultancy in information retrieval for evidence synthesis, such as systematic reviews, health technology assessment and guideline development. She is Co-Convenor of the Cochrane Information Retrieval Methods Group and is lead author on the searching chapter of The Cochrane Handbook.


This workshop provides an opportunity for those who undertake their own searches for evidence syntheses, and those how work with librarians/information specialists on the study identification, to learn more about the process of searching for studies for evidence syntheses. It addresses many of the key aspects of searching for evidence syntheses, in particular how this differs from searching for routine clinical practice/everyday questions.

Teaching strategies

The workshop will consist of a mixture of short presentations, small group and plenary discussions, together with practical exercises. The number of participants for the course is limited to 25.
