Systematic Review Workshop (August 2013)
UPDATE: This workshop has ended. Presentations from the workshop are available below.
EPA is developing and implementing approaches to enhance its scientific assessments, particularly in the area of increasing transparency and clarity related to evaluating evidence and drawing conclusions. To inform these efforts, EPA will hold a public workshop to provide scientific input on issues related to the use of a systematic review process for evaluating potential health hazards of chemical exposures.
The goal for this workshop is to receive scientific input regarding approaches for different steps within a systematic review, such as evaluating individual studies, synthesizing evidence within a particular discipline, and integrating evidence across different disciplines to draw scientific conclusions and causality determinations.
