When professionals summarise a single study, the outcome is a critically appraised paper (or CAP). CATs and CAPs are one way for busy clinicians to collate and share their appraisals.
The Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses, known as PRISMA, was first published in 2009, and in 2020, a substantial update was made to the PRISMA statement.

The PRISMA flow diagram records different stages of the research process, beginning with: "These are the databases where I searched for information," and concluding with: "These are the specific reports and studies that I am going to include in my project."
