Abstract :: Systematic reviews and meta-analyses have an important role to evidence-based clinical practice. Publication bias is an huge difficulty to get around. Publication bias is a phenomenon that distorts and exaggerates the evidence to be compiled with a meta-analysis! A systematic review with meta-analysis with considerable publication bias can be useless. In this seminar will be discussed different manifestations of bias, tools for its detection and correction as tools of effect size sensitivity analysis.
