Feedback from participants:

I was very satisfied with this workshop that I had a chance to learn directly from the authorities
of the interesting topics like systematic review and meta-analysis as well as geographic
information systems. I have dealt with these issues from time to time, but somehow I could not
find the necessary time to fully learn. This workshop has revived my interest and has created
a sound background for starting advanced studies on these topics. Many thanks to the
teachers and designers of this workshop.

However I just joined half of program, it was obvious that the organizers better described the
outcomes and ways to achieve outcomes. According to development in informatics technology,
everybody easily reach to information by little labors. Then the meetings that targeting
information sharing lost their popularity and activities for skill development become a priority.
HSE-biz has correct target and a good planned path to achieve it. On the other hand I guess,
if practical hours could plan longer and better, overall benefit would be better. Although program
implemented as planned, many participants expected less theoretical lectures and more
collective working activities.

The most useful parts for me see all steps and procedures of systematic review with application
of them. Presentations of Dr. Gallagher have valuable links, and program suggestions.

Future workshop might planned more dense, one topic, one expert and practice of whole

Thanks for all organization committee.

In today’s world that being informed is gaining importance, the power of managing knowledge
is beyond anything. This skilling training arranged after great efforts, informed us about a bigger
world. The activity was worthy of name as it is hosted by Hacettepe University and all the details were carefully studied. The multidisciplinary participant profile added another dimension to the activity.

First I would like to thank to Hacettepe University Public Health Institute and all academicians
those who contributed for giving me the opportunity to participate in this very important
“Evidence Based Health Management” training that is organized by Hacettepe University
