Systematic Review Methods

NOMINATED TOPIC | January 3, 2019
Describe your topic.
Does AHRQ and other authoritative agencies really follow the standards for producing systematic reviews? I have read the methods of many reviews produced by AHRQ, US Preventive Services Task Force and others that state they follow the methods set out by Cochrane or the National Academy of Sciences but in fact they do not. How about a systematic review on systematic reviews produced by AHRQ, ECRI and the USPSTF to see if they really followed the methods.
