Applying evidence to the care of a patient with heart failure and COPD: how to find and use a systematic review
Shaneyfelt T, Ortiz E

The latest in an ongoing series addressing evidence-based medicine skills, this article uses a case scenario to illustrate how to search for and appraise a systematic review and apply the findings to an individual patient. Because systematic reviews combine and summarize the results of multiple studies, they are useful for answering clinical questions and allow more efficient use of time. Further, systematic reviews can improve the generalizability of the results to a broader range of patients, providers, and settings than might be possible from a single study.
