Working for an NGO promoting workplace diversity, you are collaborating with a university on a systematic review

INSTRUCTIONS TO CANDIDATES
ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS

Purpose

This report will require you to assess the quality of an intervention trial based on formal Cochrane criteria in Module 2. The criteria are available to any researcher evaluating trials with a control group as part of an evidence synthesis. The Cochrane criteria are the quality assessment standard of choice across the health sciences, so familiarity with the criteria will enable you to become a more discerning consumer of reviews across a number of fields. You will draw conclusions about the quality of various features (‘domains’) of the study’s methodology, as specified in the criteria.

Your Task

Scenario

 

Working for an NGO promoting workplace diversity, you are collaborating with a university on a systematic review of randomized controlled trials of workplace interventions to promote gender equality. The systematic review is up to the quality assessment stage, and you are one of two assessors. Your research team is using the Cochrane standards, and you need to use the standards for cluster-randomised controlled trials to assess the following trial:

Carnes, M., Devine, P. G., Baier Manwell, L., Byars-Winston, A., Fine, E., Ford, C. E., Forscher, P., Isaac, C., Kaatz, A., Magua, W., Palta, M., & Sheridan, J. (2015). The effect of an intervention to break the gender bias habit for faculty at one institution: a cluster randomized, controlled trial. Academic Medicine, 90, 221–230.

 

Links to these journal articles in the course reading list are available through the MyUni information page for this assessment.

 

Requirements

The assessment task is to complete an assessor form (available in MyUni) addressing the following domains, and justifying a judgement of risk of bias in each.

Domain 1a: Risk of bias arising from the randomisation process

Domain 1b: Risk of bias arising from the timing of identification or recruitment of participants in a cluster-randomised trial

Domain 2: Risk of bias due to deviations from the intended interventions (effect of

assignment to intervention)

Domain 3: Risk of bias due to missing outcome data

Domain 4: Risk of bias in measurement of the outcome

Domain 5: Risk of bias in selection of the reported result

Overall risk of bias

 

You should refer to the relevant pages in Module 2 to assist you in your answers. A sample answer for a different cluster-randomised controlled trial is introduced in the module.

 

Note: You do not need to complete the sections of the assessor form that have a diagonal line through them.

 

The resources you need to interpret the signaling questions relating to each domain are described in Module 2. Links to these resources are available through the MyUni information page for this assessment.
