You can find systematic review articles in almost all of the nursing and health sciences databases. Our filtered databases, like the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, contain a higher percentage of systematic reviews than our unfiltered databases, like CINAHL Plus with Full Text.

Systematic reviews are at the top of the Evidence Pyramid, which means that they have a high level of evidence, but also that there aren't as many of them. Be aware that you may need to broaden your topic in order to find relevant systematic reviews.
