quality assessment

An evaluation of the extent to which a trial’s design and management are likely to have prevented systematic errors and biases. Variations in quality often explain differing results in trials asking the same question, when examined under the systematic review (meta-analytical “microscope”). More rigorously designed trials are more likely to yield results that are closer to the “truth”.
