Abstract/Summary Decisions about the effectiveness of healthcare interventions should be based on sound evidence, such as a systematic review of randomized controlled trials. Access to the results of trials, however, is problematic. Not all trials are published. Those that are published may be difficult to locate if they are published only in the grey literature or in journals that are not indexed in major databases. Those that are indexed may be hard to locate due to poor description or inadequate indexing. Those that are easily identifiable may not necessarily show the same results as other trials conducted on that topic, due to publication bias.
