A series of episodes from the BEME Committee
BEME Podcast No 10
This podcast discusses a published paper in medical teacher www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/0142159X.2018.1504164. The confusion that surrounds systematic reviews vs reviews that are systematic is discussed. Michele Daniel from Michigan Medical School presents this work which is also authored with Professor Morris Gordon, BEME Editorial committee chair and Madalena Patricio, BEME chair. She argues that the systematic component of reviews is vital, but does not align methodologically with Cochrane format systematic review and is open to numerous methods.

The session was developed by and is moderated by Janet Corral of the University of Colorado BICC.
