The value of systematic reviews in research

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Nurses may be deterred from using research to inform their practice because of the huge numbers of papers available on some topics. Literature reviews on a topic of interest may make the task easier. A systematic review aims to discover all the research undertaken on a subject and review all the results in a scientific manner. Systematic reviews may highlight findings not available from individual studies and can thus help to inform and improve practice.
