Knowledge Synthesis as a KT Tool

Link to webinar recording (via Adobe Connect)

Knowledge synthesis is a fundamental aspect of knowledge translation, as its goal is to summarize and critically appraise the best available research evidence to inform decision-making. This webinar will begin with a review of established and emerging methods of synthesizing research evidence. We will then introduce Cochrane and describe how this international group organizes the production of systematic reviews. The webinar will conclude with a presentation on overviews of reviews, an emerging method for analyzing and presenting pre-synthesized evidence.

Speakers: Dr. Lisa Hartling, Denise Thomson, and Michelle Foisy
