We would like to invite you to attend The Realist Review Process March 10th, 2020 at Woodward Library’s Sherrington Room from 10am-3pm. UBC Library and HLABC are co-hosting this full day workshop. Thanks to UBC IT support, this workshop will also be available online via streaming.

The workshop presenters are Dr. Geoff Wong, Peter Wall International Visiting Scholar, and Dr. Maura MacPhee, UBC School of Nursing. This past fall they presented their work “Policy and Practice Implications for Realist Research”. In this workshop, they will be sharing their research and this research methodology with librarians. As you may know, realist reviews are part of the systematic reviews family of reviews. Realist reviews is a knowledge synthesis methodology for researchers looking at complex policy questions. It addresses the question, ‘what works, for whom, in what circumstances, and how?’ (Wong, p.2) An increasing number of researchers are receiving grants for realist reviews. This is a growing area of publication and has some interesting differences from other knowledge syntheses. Please join us to learn more about this methodology, hear about Dr. Wong and Dr. MacPhee’s realist research on teams and discuss opportunities for librarian partnerships with researchers on these reviews.
