“Know the Evidence” Meta Study Review
The legitimacy of any healthcare intervention is grounded by research evidence.
The ‘Know the Evidence’ resource is commentary on the most current systematic reviews and meta-analyses rather than the reporting of individual studies.
Systematic reviews and meta-analyses are among the top level of the hierarchy of research evidence. They provide a comprehensive review of all relevant studies on a particular clinical or health-related topic/question.
This paper is intended to inform our membership and the public on the most current evidence of effectiveness of qigong (and tai chi practiced as qigong) therapy.
‘Know the Evidence’ is a service of the National Qigong Association, Research and Education Committee
