What is a systematic review?

May 15, 2015, 11:52 AM

A systematic review is an overview of all research studies that have been done on a specific health topic or a topic addressing social aspects of aging. Because systematic reviews are long technical documents, outlining how studies were identified and evaluating how well each study was performed, the Portal provides Evidence Summaries for some systematic reviews which are brief and easier to read. Many of our Blog Posts are also based on the highest quality systematic reviews.
