    I am familiar with ‘Systematic Reviews’, but not with ‘Integrative Reviews’.


    Can anyone tell me what these are and the process for conducting them.

    Dear Linda, 

    Integrative review is the methodology that provides synthesis of knowledge and applicability of results of significant studies to practice. Here are a few of related sources for you to retrieve:
