Abstract

URRA MEDINA, Eugenia  and  BARRIA PAILAQUILEN, René Mauricio. Systematic Review and its Relationship with Evidence-Based Practice in Health. Rev. Latino-Am. Enfermagem [online]. 2010, vol.18, n.4, pp. 824-831. ISSN 0104-1169.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-11692010000400023.

Systematic reviews (SR) have gained relevance in the world and Latin America because of their credibility in the search, compilation, arranging and analysis of the information obtained from research about health interventions, during a period of time. Consequently, evidence-based practice uses SR as a way to capture the best evidence of clinical effectiveness. This article reviews SR methodology, process, and its usefulness in health professions like nursing and medicine.

Keywords : Research; Review; Meta-Analysis.
