Introductions to doing a systematic review

What is a Systematic Review?

A systematic review is a literature review that is designed to locate, appraise and synthesize the best available evidence relating to a specific research question to provide informative and evidence-based answers. This information can then be combined with professional judgment  to make decisions about how to deliver interventions or to make changes to policy (Dickson, Cherry,  & Boland, 2014, p.3)
