Rapid reviews are a type of knowledge synthesis for which the steps of a systematic review are streamlined or accelerated to produce evidence in a shortened timeframe. In this webinar, Dr Andrea C. Tricco and Dr Etienne V. Langlois will outline the usefulness of rapid reviews for providing actionable and relevant evidence to make informed decisions, describe how to engage knowledge users (e.g. patients, healthcare providers, policy-makers) in the conduct of rapid reviews, and discuss different rapid review methods that can be used in various contexts. Prof John Lavis will describe similarities and differences across a range of EVIPNet-affiliated rapid evidence services and provide examples of how they’ve evolved over time in response to their experiences working with health-system policymakers and stakeholders.
This webinar is for anyone interested in how rapid reviews can be conducted and used to inform decision-making.
