Finding What Works in Health Care: Standards for Systematic Reviews
Busy health care providers increasingly rely on systematic reviews of research for guidance concerning the effectiveness of a particular therapy. Requested by Congress in P.L. 110-275, this new report from the Institute of Medicine recommends a set of methodological standards to ensure that these reviews are objective, transparent, and scientifically valid.
This report was released in conjunction with a related report on clinical practice guidelines.
These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on March 23, 2011 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
