Participant testimonials

We're delighted to have received some excellent feedback about this course from participants:

I found the recent JBI scoping review online training that I attended recently really useful; the process and practicalities of doing a scoping review were made very clear. The organisation of the course and communications with the university were efficient and helpful. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone considering doing a scoping review; I felt more confident (and enthusiastic!) starting my review having completed the course.

The JBI Scoping Review training at Cardiff gave me the confidence to undertake a scoping review as part of my PhD studies. The staff and presenters were all very approachable and knowledgeable. I would recommend this training to other PhD researchers or those new to scoping review.

I attended the JBI Scoping Review training in September 2022. The registration process was straightforward and the pre-event communication was excellent – the team sent all the training resources in advance of the day. The training was exceptionally well structured, with sufficient and well-timed breaks. The content was delivered at an appropriate level by a range of presenters, who were all knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Through the use of group work, a workbook and methods such as quizzes, the training was interactive, engaging and relevant for my individual work. This training was a day well spent.

Jessica Bailey, Senior Lecturer, School of Healthcare Sciences, Cardiff University

I attended the JBI Scoping Review workshop on 21st September, delivered remotely.  It was a great day, full of relevant and interesting content. I gained new knowledge and understanding which is proving valuable for conducting our systematic review. I thought that a whole day of online learning would have been hard work, but the format and hosts crafted and delivered an interactive and informative day.
