Evidence synthesis across research disciplines, policy and practice
Location:Level 6 Seminar room Charles Perkins Centre The University of Sydney
Evidence synthesis allows the full body of available evidence to be used to answer a focused research question. The use of rigorous research methods to synthesize and critically evaluate research evidence is of enormous benefit both to human health and the advancement of science.
This seminar focuses on new trends in evidence synthesis, such as making use of ‘Big Data’, new, sophisticated analytical techniques, and how theory and qualitative research evidence can enrich evidence syntheses. A second focus is on strengthening the link between evidence syntheses, policy and practice. This seminar launches the Charles Perkins Centre Evidence Synthesis Node, a new research collaboration that supports education, methods development and a new multi-disciplinary focus to evidence synthesis.
