A point to consider is that the narrower the inclusion criteria, the less generalizable are the results. However, if inclusion criteria are too broad heterogeneity (see below) becomes an issue. 3 Are the studies consistent, both clinically and statistically? You have to use your clinical knowledge to decide whether the groups of patients, interventions, and outcome measures were similar enough to merit combining their results. If not, this clinical heterogeneity would invalidate the review. Similarly, you would question the review’s validity if the trials’ results contradicted each other.

Why is this important? Randomization is important because it spreads all confounding variables evenly amongst the study groups, even the ones we don’t know about. Jargon Stratified randomization Often, there are important clinical features which we already know can affect outcomes. If these are not evenly spread amongst the subjects we could end up with a biased result. Patients can be randomized within these categories to ensure that the that these factors are equally distributed in the control and experimental groups.
