Systematic reviews and meta-analyses

Systematic reviews are appraisals and synthesis of primary research using a rigorous and clearly documented methodology.

A systematic review may optionally contain a meta-analysis.  Meta-analysis describes a series of statistical techniques for combining the results of several studies in order to derive a pooled or meta-estimate of relative risk, at the same time exploring why different studies might be producing differing estimates of relative risk.

Systematic reviews synthesise evidence of health risks for policy-makers, practitioners, and scientists and go right to the heart of evidence-based policy and practice since they should be objective assessments of the totality of the evidence on a topic.

Our work in this areas spans a wide range of public, occupational, and environmental health topics.  Recent examples include:

  • Shift work and cancer
  • Trauma and cancer
  • Return to work after cancer
We employ research scientists who are world-recognised leaders in their field and so we are ideally placed to summarise the totality of evidence on a wide range of public, occupational and environmental health topics.
