Provides an overview of the fundamental knowledge, principals and processes for the synthesis of quantitative data in reviews of the effectiveness of health care interventions.

The objective of a systematic review is to summarize the evidence on a specific clinical question using a transparent, a-priori protocol driven approach. This book is designed for new reviewers and for students, and as an introductory text for academics looking for a book on the fundamentals rather than advanced statistical processes.
