A systematic review is a balanced review and analysis of the literature on a scientific or medical topic related to diabetes. A systematic review provides the scientific rationale for a position statement and undergoes critical peer review prior to Professional Practice Committee (PPC) approval. Effective January 2010, technical reports were replaced with systematic reviews, for which a priori search and inclusion/exclusion criteria are developed and published. Listed below are recent reviews.
