How to do a rapid scoping review

This webinar, part of the Cochrane Rapid Reviews & Learning Live webinar series, will provide guidance on rapid approaches to scoping, mapping and evidence gap maps to reviewing the evidence.

It will consider the particular challenges these types of synthesis present when being undertaken within short time frames. Approaches that can be adopted will be presented, and it will be discussed how they might improve timeliness but also introduce risk of bias and error.
