University of York Centre for Reviews and Dissemination (CRD)

The Centre for Reviews and Dissemination (CRD) specialises in evidence synthesis, assembling and evaluating data from multiple research studies to generate robust evidence to inform health policy and practice.

They undertake high-quality systematic reviews and associated economic evaluations, develop underpinning methods, and promote and facilitate the use of research evidence in decision-making.

Over the past 20 years, they have completed over 200 systematic reviews covering a wide range of health care topics, many of which have had a direct impact on national policy.

The Evaluation and Evidence toolkits go hand in hand. Using and generating evidence to inform decision making is vital to improving services and people’s lives.
