Processing the process: Systematic Reviews

By Angelique Bodart, Editorial Assistant for the CSzG

As you look through the Cochrane Library > Schizophrenia and Psychosis you notice that the one thing you were hoping to find isn’t there but you know for a fact that there’s trials out there looking at that exact thing.  Why is there not a systematic review on that topic?  Because you or another clinician have not contacted us to ask to write one, or perhaps it is being done behind the scenes you just don’t know it yet.  As we have seen from Prescribing as a junior doctor: do we know what we think we know? and The Clozapine rollercoaster, systematic reviews are very important to doctors, they are also very important to patients, as they enable both to make an informed decision about how to treat schizophrenia or at least support recovery and stability.  Unfortunately systematic reviews of drugs, therapies, ECT, hospitalisation procedures etc. don’t happen by magic.  They happen because someone has contacted us with an interest they wish to pursue, to establish the usefulness of, with other like-minded people.
