The workshop will also provide an opportunity to network with other people interested in becoming systematic review authors. After the two-day workshop, periodic (optional) follow-up sessions will be held, which are designed to provide support while systematic reviews are being conducted. This workshop is open to anyone who is planning to conduct a systematic review.
