What is the best composition of a rapid review team (e.g., expertise)?

  • “How many people need to be on a team to address all methods in what is considered to be a rapid manner?”
  • “Have we evidence on the optimum number of reviewers to conduct a rapid review?”
  • “Who is best to develop a dissemination strategy, should marketing or communication expertise be included in rapid review teams?”
  • “You should involve librarians and other information specialists in all aspects of the review, but they are especially useful for disseminating findings.”
  • “Bilingual researchers might be recruited, in case research studies exist in certain languages other than English”
