Abstract: Moat et al. (2013) present 12 myths, or misconceptions, about systematic reviews regarding their use for health system policymaking in both developed and developing countries. Examples of myths that are covered include the belief that systematic reviews are not useful if they are considered 'empty' and systematic reviews of effectiveness only contain randomized controlled trials. Links to examples and relevant resources are also included. The authors also note that although a lot of work has been done to augment the usability of systematic reviews in policymaking, more research could be done in order to determine the effectiveness of the intended outcomes from these efforts.
