Event description
OHRI's Ottawa Methods Centre presents: An Introduction to Rapids Reviews

About this Event

Register now - space is limited!

A hands-on, two-day workshop on Rapid Reviews involving interactive lectures, small group exercises and case studies to introduce the rapid review approaches to help attendees understand the processes and practical issues involved in their conduct. Participants will be introduced the methodology behind rapid reviews including a brief look across the landscape and an overview of processes involved in their production. This workshop will also include practical exercises including for example, having participants formulate appropriate research questions; develop search terms; critique completed rapid reviews (e.g., for format, suitability, and their perceived utility for relevant stakeholders etc.) and opportunity to debate the strengths and limitations of this methodology. Throughout this training course, we will compare and contrast rapid review methods with the gold standard systematic review methods. Core reading to be provided in advance of the course.

Learning Objectives

1. To develop an understanding of the need for, and utility of rapid reviews as useful knowledge synthesis product;

2. To develop an appreciation of rapid reviews by detailing their underlying methodology;

3. To explore practical issues that have emerged from our experiences in conducting rapid reviews as part of our centre’s knowledge synthesis services and methods research.

Evaluation

Participants will be asked to complete a quiz intended to emphasize key take-home messages delivered over the course. Participants will be provided with a certificate of attendance

What are Rapid Reviews?

Rapid reviews are a form of knowledge synthesis in which components of the systematic review process are simplified or omitted to produce information in a timely manner. They have emerged in response to healthcare policymakers and other stakeholders’ needs for information, for which the existing systematic review model does not quite fit.

Who is this course for?

Students, researchers, and professionals with an interest in producing, commissioning or understanding evidence from rapid reviews. The session is appropriate for those who would like to learn more about the various ways to expedite the conduct of tailored rapid reviews for decision-making purposes with the aim to ensure rigor and transparency
