Methods Seminar

Department for Evidence-based Medicine and Clinical Epidemiology
Department for Evidence-based Medicine and Clinical Epidemiology

The Methods Seminar of the Department is held once a month on Thursdays at 15:30 CE(S)T at the Danube University Krems. The focus is on topics related to systematic reviews and meta-analyses. The Methods Seminar provides a platform for participants to discuss relevant issues and challenges in the daily work of reviewers.

  

In collaboration with colleagues from the Evidence-based Practice Center at the University of North Carolina (UNC) and colleagues at the Research Triangle Institute (RTI) the Department has created a course plan. For this reason, the Methods Seminar is held exclusively in English.

  

Since April 2011 there is also the opportunity to attend the Methods Seminar in an easily manner online.

 

 

Attendance at the Methods Seminar online

 

You can attend the Methods Seminar online in a simple and easily manner. No additional software is required.

 

Simply choose one of the following 2 possibilities:

 

  1. Passive participation: at the time of the Methods Seminar, click on the hyperlink of the corresponding Methods Seminar (see table above, column Hyperlink to participate online). After clicking the hyperlink, a new window / tab will open in your default web browser (e.g. Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox) in which you can watch the Methods Seminar easily (slides of the presenter). In order to receive also the audio / speech of the presenter (additionally to the slides), please use speakers / headphones connected to your PC / notebook.
     
  2. Active participation (optional): to be also able to ask questions to the presenter, you have two options:
    1. Use a microphone (in addition to the speakers / headphones).
    2. Use a headset (no speakers / headphones, headset only).


If you choose active participation (i.e. using a headset or using a microphone & speakers / headphones), please take care that all devices used are of reasonable quality. Thus the quality of audio transmission is ensured and you are heard by all participants loudly and clearly.

  

Please also note that each Methods Seminar is recorded online and subsequently placed on this website available for download (slides & audio / speech from all participants).
