3.2 Using the CRS in a Review Group

Use of the CRS in Review Groups varies according to the Group’s processes.

The CRS can be used for any or all of the following tasks, depending on the Group:

1.       To maintain a specialised register

2.       To manage searches for author teams

3.       To assist in the discovery of clinical trials from other Groups or databases that might be of interest.

It is also used to publish records to CENTRAL, and it is the only route available for doing this.
