Abstract

Summary points

- The PRISMA 2020 statement includes a checklist of 27 items to guide reporting of systematic reviews

- We hope that uptake of the PRISMA 2020 statement will lead to more transparent, complete, and accurate reporting of systematic reviews, thus facilitating evidence based decision making
