This timely, engaging book provides an overview of the nature, logic, diversity and process of undertaking systematic reviews as part of evidence informed decision making.

 

A focused, accessible and technically up-to-date book, it covers the full breadth of approaches to reviews from statistical meta analysis to meta ethnography. It is ideal for anyone undertaking their own systematic review - providing all the necessary conceptual and technical background needed to make a good start on the process.

 

The content is divided into five clear sections:

 

• Approaches to reviewing

• Getting started

• Gathering and describing research

• Appraising and synthesising data

• Making use of reviews/models of research use.

 

Easy to read and logically structured, this book is essential reading for anyone doing systematic reviews.
