Systematic reviews are an appraisal and synthesis of primary research papers on a clearly defined research question.
They use a rigorous and clearly documented methodology in both the search strategy and the selection of studies., which allows the review to be reproduced and updated, and reduces bias in the selection of studies.
Systematic reviews are an important tool in evidence based practice as they support their findings with the best quality of evidence.
