It will be a four-day residential program for librarians to work together in a relaxed and supportive environment. It is proposed that the 2018 program will cover the following: PICO and study design; Medline/PubMed expert searching; peer review of searches; filters and text mining; grey literature; critical appraisal of therapy studies; overview of qualitative studies; critical appraisal of systematic reviews; and interpreting Forest plots.  

Evaluations of the 2016 Institute showed that 100% of the 24 participants who attended would recommend this course to their colleagues:
 
"Thank you! Every bit as amazing as everyone says."

" Has been an absolute privilege to have been taught by such subject experts and fantastic teachers. Can only aspire to reach that level of skill and knowledge."

"This has been a very enjoyable week. Although there were a lot of content, the session plans were constructed really well to enable us to get through it but still learn. The resources we have been given are great and I will refer to these in future, no doubt. It has also provided us with a chance to network and get to know others working in the field."
