I’ve been asked to run an ‘introduction’ to rapid reviews workshop (open only to those in the organisation). Below is the proposed outline and is liable to change in the next 2-3 weeks.
Examples of rapid reviews. Covering ‘cut down’ systematic reviews, rapid reviews based on regulatory documents and a 5 minute semi-automated system. 30 minutes with 15 minutes for questions.
FDA/EMA regulatory documents. Hands on session (laptop/pc desirable) to familiarise users with the data contained in these documents – 30 minutes with 15 minutes questions
Rapid reviews for complex interventions. Worked example of a one hour review of risk factors and interventions to prevent drowning in children – 20 minutes with 10 minutes questions.
Automation and evidence synthesis – 20 minutes plus 10 minutes questions.
Close. But time for informal debrief and further questions.
