  • Lack of evidence ≠ lack of action – but lack of evidencet means a chance to add to the evidence base!
  • Evidence-Informed Decision Making (EIDM)- NCCMT definition:
    • use best available evidence
    • sources of evidence (all are legitimate): research, practice, & experience

7 Step rapid review process used by Peel Public Health:

  1. develop conceptual model
  2. search the evidence (use PICO; use synthesized data where possible (e.g., NICE, Health Evidence, CDC, etc.), use as high up on the pyramid of evidence as possible; use grey literature as well as published academic literature)
  3. critical appraisal tool (e.g., http://www.peelregion.ca/health/library/tools-for-rapid-reviews.asp)
  4. data extraction for systematic reviews
  5. assess applicability & transferability
  6. rapid review report structure (1(main messages)-2 (exec summary)-20 (full report))
  7. manager checklist – make sure everything has been done well
