What sets Literature Reviews and Synthesis at Costello Medical apart?


Provision of strategic advice

From the outset of project design, we work closely with our clients to ensure that our literature reviews meet their evidence requirements while also being delivered within budget. We are happy to advise clients when a more pragmatic approach to a full systematic review could be suitable. On completing evidence searches, we provide strategic interpretation of the results, placing our findings in context of the project’s objectives.


Rigorous methodologies

We pride ourselves in conforming to the most rigorous systematic review methodologies, as recommended by the Cochrane Collaboration and York Centre for Reviews and Dissemination. Our rapid and pragmatic literature reviews are similarly approached in a methodical, transparent, and reproducible manner.

Flexible approach to evidence prioritisation

We invest considerable effort in scoping the size of a review at proposal stage, to provide clients with budgets based on tried-and-tested search strategies. However, with ever-increasing volumes of scientific publications, managing the size, to ensure it is kept focused and within the scope and desired timelines, is of tantamount importance. We bring flexibility and creativity in managing high volumes of evidence to all reviews we conduct.

Extensive in-house collaboration

Our Literature Reviews and Synthesis team works closely with other specialised teams within the company, meaning that any subsequent stages of a project (such as meta-analysis, HTA submissions, value materials or publications) benefit from the involvement of dedicated experts.
