Session Abstract

Writing a systematic review or guideline takes time, is cumbersome and usually involves many stakeholders. Generally, we can divide the overall process of writing a review or guideline in a planning phase, retrieve and collect phase, an analysis and synthesis phase and finally a writing and publication phase. Fit-for-purpose tools have been designed to aid reviewers and guideline developers through these various phases. Although every step of the process can be done manually, using these tools that often include a type of automation can help speed up the process, ensure the steps are done systematically and as efficiently as possible in a collaborative way. During this session, we want to give an overview of the overall phases in the systematic review or guideline process and what fit-for-purpose tools can be used at which stage of the processes. During the interactive part of this session, participants will have an opportunity to explore a screening tool (Rayyan) and gain hands-on experience by working with an authoring and publication tool (MAGICapp). In Rayyan, a reference screening and selection tool, participants will be introduced to the tool and learn how to import a set of references and efficiently organise the screening and selection process in Rayyan for multiple reviewers. In MAGICapp, a digital authoring and publication platform designed for the MAGIC (MAking GRADE the Irresistible Choice) evidence ecosystem, participants will be introduced to the tool by learning how to add a new guideline or evidence summaries and be introduced to building evidence profiles to make recommendations according to the GRADE (Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation) approach. Finally, the instructors will give tips, and participants and instructors will be able to share experiences and views on working with these tools.

Dr. Nele Pauwels works currently (since 2015) as Information Specialist at the Knowledge Center for Health Ghent. After she obtained her PhD in Medical Sciences, Nele worked as staff member at Center for Evidence-Based Practice of the Belgian Red Cross-Flanders. She developed evidence-based guidelines and systematic reviews, according to international gold standards. Currently, she supports researchers during all stages of performing and writing a systematic review by give workshops and by giving individual guidance. Topics of her workshops are ‘advanced searching in several (bio)medical databases’, and ‘tools for systematic reviews (e.g. Rayyan and DistillerSR)’, and ‘conducting and publishing a systematic review and meta-analysis’.
