About the presenter:
Julie is a qualified librarian who has been working in the field of systematic reviews for more than 20 years. She coordinates YHEC's information and review services to customers who require literature searches and reviews of all types. Julie manages reviews ranging from rapid reviews to systematic reviews to inform submissions to reimbursement agencies such as NICE. Julie also manages indirect and mixed treatment comparisons.

Before joining YHEC, Julie was Associate Director and Information Service Manager at the Centre for Reviews and Dissemination (CRD) at the University of York for fourteen years. In this role Julie managed information support for systematic reviews and technology assessments within CRD and to external customers, and managed CRD’s NHS Economic Evaluation Database.

Julie is a co-convenor of the Cochrane Information Retrieval Methods Group, a co-author of the Cochrane Handbook chapter on searching for evidence and has contributed to the development of systematic review guidance for several organisations including the Centre for Reviews and Dissemination and the European Food Safety Agency. Julie’s research interests are in search filter design and appraisal, and the efficient identification of research evidence for systematic reviews, economic evaluations and models, and health technology assessments.


About the workshop:

This full day session will provide opportunities to learn new techniques, to discuss best approaches, to share insights and to assess variations in current best practice. The workshop will be facilitated by Julie Glanville who is experienced in literature searching to inform systematic reviews and HTAs and in conducting research into the evidence base for information retrieval.

We hope to make the session as interactive and participative as possible so you are encouraged to bring along a computer or device for searching. It will also comprise presentations and discussion. More information about what the workshop will cover to follow.
