Implementing systematic review techniques in chemical risk assessments

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


Context: There is rapidly-growing interest in how systematic review (SR) methods for gathering and appraising complex bodies of data, originally developed for the appraisal and synthesis of medical research, offer new opportunities for enhancing both the transparency and reproducibility of chemical risk assessments (RA). Because risk assessment comprises a different set of data and practices to medical science, there is a need to identify how these differences challenge the implementation of SR methods in RA and how they might be overcome. The desire in this workshop is to develop a balanced understanding of how SR methods might contribute to advancing the science which underpins chemical risk assessment. Workshop Objectives: 1. Identify from risk assessment practitioners and researchers into systematic review (SR) methods the obstacles they see, in terms of practical challenges and knowledge gaps, to implementing SR methods in chemical risk assessment. 2. Sketch out a road map for overcoming these obstacles and expediting the implementation of SR methods by the various stakeholders involved in chemical risk assessment. 3. Establish the foundations of a network to coordinate research and activities relating to implementation of SR methods, to include collaborative fundraising activities such as targeting Horizon 2020 funds.
