The Methods Webinars of the Department are held once a month on Thursdays at 15:30 CE(S)T at Danube University Krems. The focus is laid on topics related to systematic reviews and meta-analyses. The Methods Webinars provide a platform for participants to discuss relevant issues and challenges appearing in the reviewer’s daily work.
The Department has created a course plan in collaboration with colleagues from the Evidence-based Practice Center at the University of North Carolina (UNC) and colleagues at the Research Triangle Institute (RTI). For this reason, the Methods Webinars are exclusively held in English.
Since April 2011 the participation of the Methods Webinars is offered in a friendly user manner.
