Advanced Search Techniques For Systematic Reviews, Health Technology Assessment and Guideline Development Training Day, University of York

Extensive literature searches are the foundation of high quality systematic reviews, health technology assessment (HTA), guideline development and other major projects. Conducting searches to retrieve research evidence from databases and other resources requires a range of knowledge and skills. There are constant challenges to keeping up-to-date with new database features and approaches to achieving efficient searches. Search approaches may need to be adapted depending on the end-product which the search is informing and the resources available. Search approaches increasingly need to be explained to sponsors and other end-users in terms of the extent to which they are fit-for-purpose.

This workshop will provide opportunities to learn new techniques, to discuss best approaches, to share insights and to assess variations in current best practice. The workshop will be facilitated by information specialists experienced in literature searching to inform systematic reviews and HTAs and in conducting research into the evidence base for information retrieval. Participants are encouraged to suggest topics / issues in advance for discussion during the workshop.

This advanced search techniques course complements our Advanced Search Strategy Design for Complex Topics: Strategy Development, Text Analytics and Text Mining course and the Software to Support Systematic Reviews course.


Early bird price is £200 plus £40 VAT if booked before 04 September, otherwise it will be £250 plus £50 VAT. Also, if booked alongside the Advanced Search Strategy Design for Complex Topics: Strategy Development, Text Analytics and Text Mining course and the Software to Support Systematic Reviews course, you will receive a 10% discount on a 2 day course or 15% discount if you book all 3 courses together.
