Field Inquiries

Printer Friendly, PDF & Email

Our field inquiries address novel and emerging issues raised by practitioners. Because evidence on the subject may be scarce, each inquiry is subjected to a three-pronged approach: expert consultation to understand the context, rapid literature review to capture the existing evidence, and a review of existing guidance to understand the various potential approaches. We use a question-based approach to guide readers through the scenario and conclude with suggestions for mitigating the problem. These documents are internally reviewed before publication.
