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.

|Effectiveness of non-invasive positive pressure ventilation in acute respiratory failure from different causes including COVID-19: a systematic review & meta-analysis protocol||Dr. Kavita Kachroo||Kalam Institute of Health Technology: A JBI Affiliated Group||2020-05-28||
Effectiveness of non-invasive positive pressure ventilation in acute respiratory failure from different causes including COVID-19: a systematic review & meta-analysis protocol
Kalam Institute of Health Technology: A JBI Affiliated Group
Dr. Kavita Kachroo
Inclusion criteria - this review will consider studies that include participants who are suffering from acute respiratory failure from different causes including COVID-19.
Non-invasive positive pressure ventilation (NIPPV) - ventilation is a paradigm shift from the physiology of breathing spontaneously. Non-invasive positive pressure ventilation is a type of mechanical ventilation. It consists of a positive-pressure ventilator connected by tubing to a mask that applies positive air pressure to the nose, mouth, or both. It assists ventilation by delivering pressurized gas to the airways, increasing transpulmonary pressure, and inflating the lungs. Exhalation then occurs by means of elastic recoil of the lungs and any active force exerted by the expiratory muscles. The major difference between invasive and non-invasive ventilation is that with the, gas is delivered to the airway via a mask and not via invasive system.

|The experiences of parents of children with special needs educated in an inclusive environment: a qualitative systematic review||Jiří Kantor||Palacky University Evidence-Based Education: Mentee Centre||2020-05-25||
The experiences of parents of children with special needs educated in an inclusive environment: a qualitative systematic review
Palacky University Evidence-Based Education: Mentee Centre
Any parents of children with special needs. We will consider studies with parents of any age from high/middle income countries with child/children with special needs who have experienced inclusive education. The concept of special needs is understood in a very broad sense based on legislative systems of particular countries and includes various special educational conditions caused by disability, health problems, disorders, sociocultural factors, etc.
We will explore school-related lived experiences of parents that have children with special needs educated in inclusive environment. We are interested in their own perspective rooted in their lived experiences, not a perspective of other participants of inclusive education, eg. schoolmates and their parents, or teachers. By inclusive education is meant both full and partial inclusion. We won´t consider studies on parents with their children educated only in special schools or self-contained classrooms in mainstream schools.

Hopeful experiences and expectations of parents of children with congenital heart disease: a qualitative systematic review protocol
Portugal Centre for Evidence Based Practice: A JBI Centre of Excellence
Matilde Silva Carvalho
This review will consider studies where the participants are parents of children and young people up to the age of 18, with a diagnosis of a congenital heart disease. It is understood as a congenital heart disease the result of an abnormal development of the heart, or blood vessels near the heart, during pregnancy, which include, but are not limited to, conditions as common arterial truncus, ventricular septal defect, atrial septal defect, atrioventricular septal defect, aortic atresia/interrupted aortic arch, coarctation of aorta, double outlet right ventricle, transposition of great vessels, tetralogy of fallot, ebstein's anomaly, valvular stenosis or atresia, hypoplastic left heart and hypoplastic right heart. It is understood as parents the set of individuals who have the responsibility to provide primary care to the child/ young person.
This review will include studies that explore parents’ hopeful experiences and expectations when caring for children with a congenital heart disease. Hope is a highly personalized, central to life, dynamic and multidimensional experience. Hope is characterized by a confident yet uncertain expectation of achieving (expectations) a something good in the future which, to the hoping person, is realistically possible and personally significant. Hope is also a forward-looking concept, which confers empowerment, is related to external help, to care and to the concept of faith.

Mapping the available evidence on the nature, extent, and range of diabetes self-management education programs for older adults: a scoping review protocol
Queen's Collaboration for Health Care Quality: A JBI Centre of Excellence
The review will consider studies that involve older adults with type 1 and 2 diabetes. For this review, older adults are defined as those 65 years of age and over. This review is not specific to gender, sex, ethnicity, frailty, or another demographic variable. Studies that include the healthcare provider’s perception of issues related to diabetes self-management education approaches for older adults with types 1 and 2 diabetes will also be considered.
The concept of interest in this scoping review is diabetes self-management education. The scoping review will consider studies that provide information about diabetes self-management education programs for older adults. Therefore, all studies with a focus on approaches and strategies to diabetes self-care and self-management from the perspective of older adults with diabetes and the healthcare provider will be considered.

These comorbidities only influence the level of support and do not affect greatly the type of support administered by the university. Excluded will be students with ASD combined with other psychiatric comorbidities not mentioned above.
