Rapid reviews in public health

As public health organizations across Canada adopt and implement evidence-informed approaches to public health decision-making, there is a need for up to date evidence that can be applied to local contexts. While the most rigorous approach is to find or do a systematic review, timelines and resources often dictate a rapid review of the literature. Rapid reviews are tailored for a shorter timeline, but still use rigorous and transparent methodology to ensure that the best available research evidence is used in decision making.

How can the Rapid Review Guidebook help you?

The NCCMT has developed a Rapid Review Guidebook that details each step in the rapid review process, with notes on how to tailor the process given resource limitations. The Guidebook also includes a guide to writing the final report, with details on how to structure the report and what to include in each section.

Join us for an overview of the rapid review process. Participants will learn about the steps of a rapid review and resources required to support the rapid review process.
