Systematic Reviews

In this guide:

A systematic review is a collection of academic approved evidence which is searched for using strict searching criteria and selected based on relevant criteria for a specific research question.  As the name suggests, a systematic review uses a methodical method of evidence selection to minimise bias, and provide reliable findings which conclusions can be drawn from.

Due to the scientific technique used in systematic reviews they are considered to be reliable evidence to inform policy and guidelines, as well as decision making for patient care.
