Four speakers addressed different aspects of systematic reviews, including key characteristics, review types, resources & tools needed to conduct a review, and standards & guidelines for creating reviews. Systematic reviews are an important aspect of evidence-based medicine, and are the gold standard for healthcare decision-making.
