Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Systematic reviews are a thorough and efficient method of appraising literature and providing an evidence base for practice.

While resources such as the Cochrane Collaboration provide extensive and valuable information in relation to the issues that should be considered, there is little immediately available in the nursing literature.
