Guidance for Systematic Reviews

A detailed guidance on carrying out systematic reviews in healthcare, has been issued by the University of York’s Centre for Reviews and Dissemination. It provides practical guidance for undertaking evidence synthesis based on a thorough understanding of systematic review methodology. It presents  the core principles of systematic reviewing, and highlights issues that are specific to reviews of clinical tests, public health interventions, adverse effects, and economic evaluations. The final chapter discusses the incorporation of qualitative research in or alongside effectiveness reviews.  The guidance is available in print or PDF versions.
