Description In this workshop, you will be introduced to the concepts of synthesis of evidence and systematic reviews of animal studies and to the differences between these review methods and classical, so-called narrative reviews. Both the advantages and the limitations of systematic reviews will be discussed. Moreover, you will get the opportunity to actually practice the steps of which systematic reviews typically consist. Through this practical experience you will get a good idea about the added value of systematic reviews and about the possibilities and efforts needed for conducting such a review in your own field of research. This workshop is a collaboration between SYRCLE (SYstematic Review Centre for Laboratory animal Experimentation) and PAO Heyendael.
