A team of authors and editors are working to prepare the Handbook for DTA Reviews. As each chapter is completed it will be uploaded to the Cochrane Screening & Diagnostic Test Methods Group website.
The Handbook is planned to have 11 chapters, out of which six are already completed and available for download. Currently available chapters cover contents of a Cochrane protocol for Diagnostic Test Accuracy (Ch. 4), criteria for including studies (Ch. 6), searching for studies (Ch. 7), assessing methodological quality (Ch. 9), analysing and presenting results (Ch. 10) and interpreting results (Ch. 11).
