Andrew Booth


A systematic review methodologist since 1995, I teach on the Masters in Public Health, the Masters in Public Health (Online) and the MSc in Health Informatics (within the Department of Information Studies). I am a co-convenor for the international Cochrane Collaboration Qualitative & Implementation Research Methods Group. I am a founder member of the Cochrane Information Retrieval Methods Group and a member of the Cochrane Rapid Reviews Group and the Cochrane Trainers' Network. I am also a member of the HTA-i Information Specialists' Group and an associate member of the InterTASC Information Specialists' Group. My research interests focus on all methods of systematic review, evidence synthesis, evidence based practice, and knowledge translation. I am particularly interested in systematic review topics from developing countries, particularly from Sub-Saharan Africa, and in public health topics such as alcohol and HIV/AIDS. I have published with students in topics such as medication adherence, social marketing, disaster management and evidence based management. My current research students are working in knowledge management in acute hospitals and use of NICE guidance in Social care.
