What simplified or omitted methods of a systematic review (e.g., single versus dual screening of citations for inclusion, restrictions on types of studies included) are appropriate to apply in a rapid review, and what are the effects of these simplifications or omissions (e.g., effect on the methods, conclusions, funding available)?
“How much can be the methods be simplified/ omitted before relevant/ important evidence starts to be missed?”
“What do we lose (if anything) if we don’t do anything in duplicate?”
“Is it appropriate in the context of a rapid reviews to include only one researcher at every stage or how is the rigour of the review addressed?”
“What components/review tasks can be omitted from rapid reviews comparative to full effectiveness reviews and still maintain the integrity of the review (and confidence in the findings)”
“What elements are absolutely essential for a RR comparative to a systematic review – e.g., summary narrative results or meta-analysis?”
The mission of Evidence Synthesis Ireland (ESI) is to make evidence syntheses more usable in every sense of the word – better designed, conducted and reported, more useable for decision makers and more usable within health care policy and clinical practice decision making across the island of Ireland and beyond.
