JBI Evidence Synthesis kicks off 2021 with a diverse selection of systematic reviews. Our featured review focuses on the safety and effectiveness of strategies for reducing radiation exposure in proceduralists who perform cardiac catheterization​, highlighting evidence to support the use of leaded drapes during these procedures, while an accompanying editorial addresses current challenges and opportunities with evidence synthesis in the field of radiography. A second systematic review investigates the effect of phenylephrine on cerebral oxygen saturation and cardiac output when used to treat intraoperative hypotension. Finally, a qualitative review explores the experiences of adults with intellectual disability who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender within the mainstream community, highlighting the challenges these individuals face in their everyday lives. You'll find a list of issue highlights below, and our full table of contents including current and ongoing systematic review and scoping review projects is available here​. ​


We are also pleased to present a JBI Best Practice Information Sheet to accompany the systematic review "Safety and effectiveness of strategies to reduce radiation exposure to proceduralists performing cardiac catheterization procedures ." This brief four-page summary of the published review features the important details including the findings and conclusions of the review, as well as the recommendations for practice. JBI Best Practice Information Sheets are available in the JBI Evidence Based Practice Database and are prepared for a selection of systematic reviews published in JBI Evidence Synthesis.
