The Executive team is excited to invite you to another live session of an MLA CE Webinar. Based off your feedback from the HLABC 2022-2023 Membership Survey, most respondents desire live online CE events on topics including systematic and scoping reviews. To accommodate these preferences, HLABC will pay for current members to attend the upcoming MLA CE Webinar, Selecting and Using Data Extraction Tools for Systematic Reviews. Abbreviated details on this session can be found below, and for full event information including presenter bio, please click the event title link above.

Selecting and Using Data Extraction Tools for Systematic Reviews
Date of Live Event: March 30, 1:00 p.m.–2:30 p.m., central time (11:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m., pacific time). Recording available soon after.

You’ll learn what data extraction tools are and how they work. You’ll explore ways to identify tools using the SR Toolbox, a free online catalog of systematic review tools. You’ll see how to classify tools based on their features and capabilities and gain an overview of the pluses and minuses of commonly used tools (e.g., EPPI Reviewer, Covidence, PICO Portal, as well as Word and Excel, and, of course, SRDR+). Data extraction tool development and refinement is ongoing, and if you understand how to use and evaluate tools, you’ll be able to monitor the literature and use the SR Toolbox to find new tools.

You’ll also learn what to consider when comparing and choosing a tool, incorporating team preferences, the review topic, and team needs. During the session, you’ll work through exercises to define a team’s needs based on cost, usability, product support, and what a team wants from a tool (e.g., flexibility or a prescribed approach, data extraction only or integration with literature identification and meta-analysis).

You’ll end the webinar with a group exercise in SRDR+ that includes designing a simple data extraction form and extracting a single randomized controlled trial into that form.
