Demystifying Systematic Literature Reviews: Identifying Opportunities for Information Teams and Librarians

Meaghan Muir – Information Manager, Vertex Pharmaceuticals, Inc

Meghan_Muir.jpg
Summary

In today's Pharma/Biotech/Medical Device landscape, business functions such as Real World Evidence (RWE), Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER), and Health Economics Outcomes Research (HEOR) have assumed an increasingly critical role in organizational success. These evidence-based practices rely heavily on systematic literature reviews, which are complex, targeted surveys of large data sets - typically literature and study outcomes.

This workshop will introduce participants to the primary concepts, methodologies, and processes involved in systematic reviews and demonstrate the exciting cross-functional opportunities they represent to Information Teams and Librarians.

Instructor

Meaghan Muir joined the Library & Information Sciences team at Vertex Pharmaceuticals in November 2018 as Information Manager.  She is responsible for scientific intelligence searching, as well as supporting library outreach and marketing activities across Vertex. Prior to joining Vertex, Meaghan was the Manager of Library Services at Boston Children’s Hospital where she led a team of librarians and archivists and oversaw the medical library and archives program. Meaghan has also worked in medical libraries at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, both in Boston. Meaghan has extensive experience conducting, designing, and teaching systematic literature reviews; her work has earned her numerous co-authorships and dozens of published acknowledgements.

Objectives

This 4-hour course will cover the following:

What are systematic reviews and why should you know more?
      Types of systematic review 
      Critical appraisal of published systematic reviews

Systematic review methodology and process
     Essential steps, standards and guidelines to conduct a systematic review

     Search strategy best practices
     Overview of best-in-class databases
Collaborating on systematic reviews within your organization
     How are systematic reviews or other systematic searches used in organizations?

     Roles of Librarians/Information Teams
     How information professionals can leverage their existing skill sets to play a vital role in these reviews, regardless of where that function lies.

Prerequisites: Participants are required to bring a laptop to class for interactive exercises

Outcomes: Participants will obtain a foundational knowledge of:
     Systematic review standards and methodologies

     The increasingly vital role evidence-based reviews play in health care organizations
     Real-life examples of how Librarians and Information Teams can become involved in these projects
     How to learn more about this expertise

Intended Audience: All levels; no previous systematic literature searching experience required
