Over the past decade, Evidence-based Practice Centers (EPCs) accumulated a wealth of knowledge about conducting systematic reviews and compiling evidence reports. In this supplement, they share with readers some of the most difficult methodologic challenges that they faced. They give many examples to illustrate multiple approaches for addressing the challenges, and they make recommendations for future reviewers to improve processes and presentation of reviews and evidence reports.
