Evidence Synthesis Programme

Our team at Clinical Research & Evidence-Based Unit operates an extensive evidence synthesis programme in collaboration with other academic entities. Main aims of the programme are:


  • To formulate critical questions of clinical relevance to patients and healthcare providers
  • To systematically appraise and synthesise the available body of evidence for common healthcare interventions and diagnostic tests
  • To identify areas of uncertainty in healthcare
  • To minimise redundant research
  • To develop scientifically sound clinical practice recommendations tailored to every individual patient’s needs

Selected publications of our team include:
