A methodology for conducting rapid evidence reviews

This presentation, from Ottawa Hospital Research Institute (OHRI), is aimed at developing an understanding of the need for, and utility of, rapid reviews (RR)as a useful knowledge synthesis product. It looks at the OHRI methodology with regards to the use of RRs and provides discussion of practical issues in providing a rapid review knowledge synthesis service. 

Excerpt

"Rapid reviews ‘defined’

  • Policymakers and healthcare stakeholders increasingly seeking evidence to inform the policymaking process
  • Often require rapid access to high-quality evidence to inform decisions on emergent issues or questions
  • Seen an increase in use of rapid review-type products
  • However, no universally accepted definition or methodological protocol of Rapid Review (RR)
  • Closest we’ve come to a definition: Rapid review (RR) ≈ Literature review produced using accelerated and streamlined systematic review (SR) methods."
