Systematic Reviews

Systematic reviews provide comprehensive and unbiased summaries of the research on a single topic.
These reviews bring together large numbers of individual studies in a single document.
As part of the systematic review process, this research is subject to a critical appraisal.
Even when the research evidence is limited or nonexistent, these reviews summarise current best evidence on the topic.
These reviews not only provide the best evidence for clinical decision making, they can also help determine future research needs.
Best practice guidelines &
Evidence summaries.
Best practice guidelines are systematic statements to assist practitioners’ decisions about appropriate health care for specific clinical circumstances
Evidence summaries gather together multiple studies and summarise the strongest evidence and results.
They clearly differentiate opinion from evidence;
Guidelines and Summaries document the strength of the evidence that supports each recommendation with references.
Evidence-based guidelines not only make statements about which interventions are recommended, but quantify any difference in outcome, including benefit and harms, between options.
