Systematic Reviews and Evidence Synthesis

The Research Institute hosts an active and productive team of systematic reviewers, information specialists, and statisticians, who generate and support a wide range of systematic reviews, evidence syntheses, and meta-analysis: from horizon scans, rapid reviews, network meta-analysis, and mixed method reviews. 

The team also leads research to develop and advance evidence synthesis methods and contributes to the Research Institute's clinical research. 

We have strong national and international collaborations related to prognosis review methods and information retrieval, as well as with Cochrane methods and review groups. 

The team provides methodological support to evidence-based practice groups of General Practitioners, Allied Health Professionals, and nurses. We also offer training and systematic review support not only to staff and students within the Research Institute but across both Keele Universiy and the local NHS community.
