Evidence Hour: CVR Webinar Series
The Center for Victim Research has a new webinar series we’re calling The Evidence Hour. Every month, CVR will showcase a recent systematic review or meta-analysis about victimization, trauma, or victim services. Each webinar will feature an author of the research and a practitioner discussant who will review the findings and reflect on what they mean for victim service providers and researchers. Contact us to request any of these these articles and be added to our contact list for invitations.

What are Systematic Reviews?
- A systematic review is the process of bringing together all available studies about a well-defined question, analyzing the quality of their study methods, and summarizing their findings.
- Systematic reviews often use a statistical practice called meta-analysis. This means combining data from multiple studies, to find patterns and calculate the average effect of the intervention.
- Because systematic reviews pool results from many experiments and rate the methods of each study, these reviews increase our confidence in the quality and consistency of the evidence and what it means for the field.
Basically, systematic reviews take a large amount of information about a complex issue from multiple sources and make that information more manageable and usable. These reviews can also help make sense of conflicting findings from different studies.
