Knowledge synthesis provides the evidence to support informed decision making in healthcare – including evidence-based practice, health technology assessment, guideline development, and policy decisions. It is the process whereby all research evidence and opinion on a specific topic is systematically analysed, appraised and recommendations made. The ability to perform systematic reviews of evidence is an essential skill for all researchers.
