Why do we talk about systematic reviews so much?
There are more than 30,000 medical and health journals. They publish far more information than anyone can read, and it is not all of equal quality and value. So how can anyone know what to read and keep up any more?
Even if you only consider controlled trials, the challenge is enormous: more than 60 are published every day. This is why we need systematic reviews to sort out the wheat from the chaff for us. Researchers look for all the trials they can find. They analyse them to see what treatments might really work.
But even keeping up with these is getting harder. There are four new systematic reviews every day, too. Our team will keep a watch on them and choose interesting and important ones to help you keep on top of the flood of health information.
