This report includes three different examples of user involvement in systematic reviews. Each example has used different methods of involvement and reported on different types of impact.

Example 1 is a systematic review of consumers' perspectives on ECT which was user led. User involvement had an impact on all stages of the review including the type of evidence used and the findings.
Example 2 is a review of evidence relating to HIV prevention in men who have sex with men. The lessons mainly relate to successfully involving users via an advisory group.
Example 3 is a review that contributed to developing the National Newborn Screening Programme. User involvement had an impact on the leaflets produced and led to further involvement in guideline development and research.
