Evidence synthesis (ES) reviews are comprehensive, rigorous reviews of available information and often serve as the foundation of evidence-based decision making. During this session, we will illustrate the characteristics and history of ES, and describe some of the methods commonly used today. By the end of this 1.5 hour session, you’ll be able to (1) differentiate narrative/traditional literature review and a systematic, evidence synthesis approaches, (2) recognize commonly used reviews methods and how to select methods based on your goals, and (3) consider how to apply some best practices from evidence synthesis to your literature review, regardless of the method you choose.
