Appraise the evidence

Study type: Systematic reviews

Learn more about:

Critical appraisal of systematic reviews also requires a slightly different approach to other critical appraisal tasks, again using the same evidence-based principles. More emphasis is placed on the methodology of the review, rather than the individual studies. If a meta-analysis is included, it is important to ensure that the studies have been appropriately combined.
