Instructor's Bio:I am a project manager at the Vanderbilt Evidence-based Practice Center, primarily responsible for facilitating systematic reviews of medical and behavioral interventions. In my role, I am involved in the design and conduct of the review, as well as the retrieval and review of published and grey-sources of literature. With the assistance of staff scientists and analysts, I manage several steps of data extraction, appraisal, and synthesis of the findings to generate an evidence-based summary of primary literature for dissemination among stakeholders, funders, policy-makers, and healthcare providers. I previously worked as a protocol analyst to improve compliance of human subjects’ research proposals and ensure proper informed consent procedures for research participants. As a health sciences librarian, I conducted individual and group training sessions on navigating the medical literature and participated in various knowledge management projects. I enjoy all aspects of my current and prior experience and am happy to have the opportunity to offer in-depth and focused training on searching and critical appraisal of the literature for development of systematic reviews.
