Join us for a FREE two-part workshop on best practices for conducting systematic reviews and meta-analyses in addictions and other behavioral science disciplines

Description: Systematic reviews and meta-analyses are important tools for synthesizing findings across studies, estimating effect sizes, examining sources of bias, and identifying gaps in the literature. Trainees often must conduct a systematic review as part of their written comprehensive exams. Part 1 will cover the purpose of systematic reviews, choosing a research question, conducting literature searches, pre-registering protocols, and other key concepts. Part 2 will be more hands-on, focusing on tools for study selection, data extraction, basic statistical analyses, and presenting results. Target audience is pre/post-doctoral trainees, research staff, and faculty. Everyone is welcome to attend. The sessions will be recorded and posted for later viewing.

About the Facilitators: Victoria (Tori) Votaw is a Clinical Psychology Ph.D. candidate and NIAAA F31 Predoctoral Fellow at the University of New Mexico. Michael Amlung is the Associate Director for Training of the Cofrin Logan Center for Addiction Research and Treatment and Associate Professor in the Department of Applied Behavioral Science at KU. Both Tori and Michael have published multiple systematic reviews and meta-analyses in peer-reviewed journals.
