Evidence Synthesis Ireland

A study within a review (SWAR)

A study within a review (SWAR)is a research study that can help provide evidence to inform decisions about how we plan, do and share the findings of future reviews. We’d like to bring together people who are interested in SWARs, and start a SWAR Network. We envision this network would explore SWAR methods, keep everyone up-to-date, and potentially explore challenges and opportunities around SWARs. The first SWAR network meeting was hosted by Evidence Synthesis Ireland and Cochrane Ireland, at the Cochrane Colloquium, in September 2023.
