The remaining courses for 2019 are as follows:

  • Cochrane Systematic Review Advanced Author Training (Dublin - 15th November 2019)

  • Mixed Methods Synthesis (Galway - 25th and 26th November 2019) 

This two-day workshop will provide knowledge and practical experience of undertaking mixed-methods evidence synthesis. It will cover the underpinning logic of mixed-method evidence synthesis, the range of possible approaches, and the benefits, procedures and challenges associated with the different approaches. 


  • Workshop - What is meta-ethnography and how do you do it?  (Belfast - 10th December 2019) 

This 1 day workshop will provide participants with an in-depth understanding of the key principles of meta-ethnography conduct including the complex analytic synthesis processes of ‘translation’ and ‘synthesising translations.’ Meta-ethnography is a popular and influential interpretive methodology for synthesising qualitative research studies in health and social care. Developed in 1988 by sociologists in education Noblit and Hare, the systematic, sevenphase meta-ethnography methodology has evolved and advanced in the subsequent 30 years.
