Abstract

Academic Emergency Medicine is interested in publishing systematic reviews (also known as meta-analyses) containing explicit, quantitative compilations of valid, critically appraised evidence targeted at topics relevant to the science and practice of emergency medicine. This article presents a strategy for the performance and reporting of systematic reviews, based on established recommendations. A well-performed systematic review of the literature may provide clinically relevant information otherwise unobtainable, and has potential to alter patient care. Systematic reviews are logical methodological extensions of evidence-based medicine.
