Comprehensive systematic review completed

JBI final


The training on the Comprehensive Systematic Review was completed, in which 31 participants from the Medical Universities of Kazakhstan and Europe took part. The program was provided by JBI, an international research organization based in the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Adelaide, South Australia.

The training provided an opportunity for participants to improve their skills in developing protocols for qualitative and quantitative systematic reviews, and all participants began to develop their own systematic review topics. Significantly, attendees gained one-year access to the JBI SUMARI (System for the Unified Management of the Assessment and Review of Information) platform, a web-based application designed to help researchers and practitioners in areas such as health, social and human sciences.

Training in a comprehensive systematic review is a great investment for the Medical Universities of Kazakhstan, as it will provide the most convincing evidence for decision making or clinical guidelines in healthcare.

Upon completion of the training, all participants received certificates of participation and expressed a desire to continue working on systematic reviews.
