Evidence Synthesis Team

Evidence synthesis is a way of bringing together and summarising all available research on a particular topic or question.

Our Evidence Synthesis Team collates evidence and produces full systematic reviews and evidence summaries to inform local and national health and care practice. They work closely with those who will eventually use the findings, including both lay people and professionals. 

The team also provides training in evidence synthesis skills for academics, health professionals and students across the South West through running workshops, clinics and teaching. 

The team works closely with the Information Specialist Team and others from Evidence Synthesis & Modelling for Health Improvement at the University of Exeter on multiple projects and in delivering Search and Review clinics.
