These videos, originally part of the Cochrane Learning Live webinar series, focus on the topics and methods in the rapid review work being undertaken by Cochrane in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
The first part of the session covered what's happening in Cochrane in response to COVID-19 overall, as well as specifically about our Rapid Review activities; including:-
- Building the Question Bank
- Prioritisation of topics
- Working with author teams
- Template development
- How we have streamlined the internal editorial and production process
In the second part, Chantelle Garrity from the Cochrane Rapid Reviews Methods Group presented the methods being used and gave an overview of our Rapid Review methods guidance including the process behind their development.
The webinar was delivered in April 2020 and below you will find the videos from the webinar, together with accompanying slides to download [PDF].
