"Evidence synthesis during a pandemic: Impact of COVID-19 in pregnancy"
About this talk
How do you provide accurate and up-to-date evidence on effects of a novel virus, when new evidence is being generated at a rapid pace? John’s talk will focus on the PregCoV-19 Living Systematic Review, which sets out to provide robust evidence on the effect of COVID-19 in pregnancy, how the group was set up and what some of the groups' findings are.
