SYSTEMATIC REVIEW REGISTER
The core of evidence synthesis is the systematic review of literature of a particular intervention, condition or issue.
Registration of Systematic Review Titles
Please note: this register is for the use of JBI affiliated entities ONLY. Registration of a systematic review title on the JBI website is to promote collaboration between affiliated entities via highlighting current work to other JBI review authors and to recognise that the registered topic is currently in development to avoid any unintended and/or unnecessary duplication of research effort.
Registered systematic reviews that are currently underway are listed below. Protocols for these reviews may already be published or in preparation for publication within six months of initial registration. To avoid duplication, titles in this list should not be replicated by other review authors. Please contact the listed Primary Reviewer or the JBI Synthesis Science Unit if you would like further information about any of these registered reviews.
Registration of titles on this web page does not in any way constitute acceptance of the topic by JBI Evidence Synthesis.

|Simulation in Social Work Education: A Scoping Review||
The review will examine empirical studies (quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods). The studies are in English and there are no date restrictions.
The studies examined in this review will include simulation as a teaching or learning method. Simulation-based learning replicates an authentic micro, mezzo or macro social work scenario and involves professional or amateur actors and the actor(s) can be in roles such as standardized client, standardized patient, standardised member of an IPE team, and standardised supervisor or field instructor.
This scoping review will focus on social work programs, undergraduate and graduate social work students, social work professional training's (e.g., post-graduation professional development training) and/or social work-related practical or field placements.

The experiences of community-dwelling older adults living with hearing loss: a systematic review of qualitative evidence
Memorial University School of Nursing Collaboration for Evidenced-Based Nursing and Primary Health Care: A JBI Affiliated Group
The population of interest are men and women, aged 50 years and older, living with hearing loss in the community.
No comparator: qualitative review
The context of this review is any community worldwide where seniors with hearing loss live. Studies considered for this review will be those in which qualitative data can be gathered and analyzed on the phenomena of interest, including mixed methods research.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Interventions in Hospitals: Systematic Review on Job Engagement
Queen's Collaboration for Health Care Quality: A JBI Centre of Excellence
The review will consider studies that include healthcare professionals in hospitals. Healthcare professionals will be defined as hospital staff that work as physicians, nurses, pharmacists, medical technologists and physiotherapists.
Interventions included in the systematic review were workplace designed MBSR programs implemented over up to a thirty-six week period, which included a wait list control group and a pre/post psychometric analysis.
Comparator: The comparator is a wait list group that will not undergo the intervention but be tested at the same time intervals as the test group. The comparator group consists of a similar population demographics when participants are randomly assigned.

Prevalence of chemotherapy- induced taste alterations in adult cancer patients: A systematic review protocol
Belgian Interuniversity Collaboration for Evidence-based Practice (BICEP): A JBI Centre of Excellence
The review will consider studies that include adult cancer patients who are receiving or have received chemotherapy as a treatment for an oncologic problem. Age limits are set at 18-65 years. Taste changes are described as a side effect of normal ageing. Therefor an upper limit on age has been defined.
Exposure: Condition: This review will include studies that investigate the prevalence of chemotherapy-induced taste changes that are assessed objectively or subjectively. Objectively, taste (alterations) can be assessed by electrogustometry, liquid tastants or filter paper. Subjectively, several validated questionnaires are developed: i.e. Chemosensory Questionnaire, Swedish and US questionnaire, taste and smell survey, Italian Chemotherapy induced taste alteration scale (CiTAS). Eligible studies must report on one or more specific taste change such as aguesia, hypoguesia, dysguesia or phantoguesia. These taste changes must be described as a specific side effect of chemotherapy treatment. Furthermore, studies will be excluded if diagnosis of taste change is not based on validated instruments.
COntext: The review will consider in and outpatient studies. Curative as well as palliative contexts will be included. Chemotherapy as a treatment for cancer. Chemotherapy is often given in combination with different drugs (immunotherapy or targeted therapy) or with radiation therapy. Studies that consider the prevalence of the taste changes of these patients will be excluded except where there is a clear distinction between groups of patients. The group of patients with chemotherapy only, will be included.

This review will consider the studies and textual materials on undergraduate and post graduate medical students.
The clinical dissertation topic’s uniqueness and novelty seems a topic of least interest amongst medical students of LMIC countries. This could be attributable to factors like clinical indulgement, lack of protected time for research, mediocre guidance from senior faculties etc. Several educational interventions like workshops, journal club may inculcate the spirit of research in them
