Evidence-based healthcare practice encourages practitioners and decision makers to integrate the latest research and evidence into daily practice. Systematic reviews facilitate this by combining the results of several studies, giving a more reliable and precise estimate of an interventions effectiveness than one study alone.
If you are looking for systematic reviews or meta-analyses to evaluate for your own research or to use their findings to support policy or practice decision-making, we can show you how to efficiently and effectively search the right databases.
If you are carrying out your own systematic review, your NHS liaison librarian can provide practical support for the following systematic review steps:
formulating a research question
developing a search strategy
running a search
You might also want to book onto one of our systematic review training sessions. Introduction to systematic reviews: finding and managing the evidence explains the process of how to plan and search for literature and ways to manage your results, while Introduction to critical appraisal goes through the process of evaluating and validating the research that you have found.
