  PRISM (Maynooth University) and the EPPI Centre (University College London) present:

Synthesising qualitative evidence to inform policy and practice: A systematic review workshop

Wednesday, 14 September 2016, 9:00 to 16:00

John Hume Building (Department of Psychology, Floor 2)

Maynooth University, Co. Kildare, Ireland

This one-day workshop, hosted by PRISM in partnership with the EPPI-Centre (University College London), will enable participants to incorporate, appraise and synthesise qualitative evidence within a systematic review.

Systematic reviews of qualitative evidence provide an important technology for synthesising information to better inform clinical decision-making and policy development. Qualitative syntheses (or qualitative systematic reviews) allow us to move beyond the subject of intervention effectiveness to answer questions about the acceptability and feasibility of interventions, understand factors that influence implementation, investigate under-reported adverse outcomes and explore the meaning of the phenomenon/intervention for consumers.

For more information on the workshop, see the attached flyer. Early booking is advised as places are limited to 25 participants. Register for the workshop at
