Workshop: Literature Review for the Health Sciences

he Literature Review is a form of evidence synthesis that is impactful and popular in the health sciences. Literature reviews can broaden the readers’ understanding of a topic, highlight research gaps that warrant new primary research, and offer clinicians and health practitioners insight into the efficacy of an impact or intervention, which can inform treatment. In this workshop, we will discuss what types of reviews are best suited for qualitative and quantitative research in the health sciences; what protocols and recommendations exists to guide the review process; how to search empirical literature methodologically and systematically in health-related databases; and answer any questions you may have about conducting a literature review in the health sciences.
