This handbook focuses on how to evaluate and use the evidence gathered from a systematic literature review to inform the development of evidence-based clinical guidelines. In doing so, it builds on the information presented in an accompanying handbook in this series (How to review the evidence: systematic identification and review of the scientific literature), drawing on the most recent methods that have emerged in this rapidly developing area.
