SYSTEMATIC REVIEW REGISTER
JBI has developed a collection of world-class resources driven by the needs of health professionals and consumers worldwide.
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.

This review will consider participants (adults and children) that have been diagnosed with a voice disorder using any diagnostic criteria or framework.
This review will consider a broad range of studies that report on patients with a voice disorder and include: 1) the development or description of a voice disorder classification framework and / or classification criteria (i.e. groups of conditions); 2) a description of defined criteria used to describe one or more voice disorder classification group(s) / framework.
Studies considered for inclusion will: 1) provide enough descriptive detail of the structure of the classification system to allow for a summary description; 2) use well defined methodological approaches to determine a set of criteria. (e.g. a consensus approach based on expert opinion; statistical modeling; systematic literature reviews; methods considering multiple diagnostic tests).

In this scope review we will consider all documents in the white and gray literature that address the quality monitoring indicators in the process of organ and tissue donation, individual participants will not be considered in the selection of studies.
The concepts of interest are the Indicators for monitoring the quality of the organ and tissue donation process used in health systems and services. The indicators are a guideline that helps to verify whether the objectives initially proposed have been achieved, allow monitoring and continuous improvement of services. Therefore, studies, reports or documents that investigate the terms: “Quality indicators”, “Quality metrics”, “Health Status Indicators”, “Organ donation”, “Tissue donation”, “Tissue and Organ Procurement” will be included.

This review will consider studies that include participants who are: a) Nurses - a registered nurse affiliated with a government-authorized licensing body for the effective legal practice of the profession. A professional willing to take part in a simulation learning activity to obtain or demonstrate mastery of knowledge, skills, and initiatives of professional practice.
All studies explore the use of simulations. Definition: Simulation is a technique that recreates real clinical situations with their particularities, within a controlled environment, in an interactive way, to develop knowledge in a practical method. Therefore, preparing the student in a complete, cognitive, and behavioral way, and improving their decision-making ability and the management of problems presented, when something similar happens in a real clinical setting.
