This is a recording of the Cochrane Canada Webinar with Jennifer O’Neill and Vivian Welch from the Campbell and Cochrane Equity Methods Group, on reporting guidelines for systematic reviews with an equity focus.

Systematic reviews with an equity focus are those with interventions that target disadvantaged populations, are aimed at reducing social gradients across populations, or are likely to have important effects on equity. This webinar presents the equity-extension checklist (PRISMA-E 2012) for reporting systematic reviews. Examples are provided to illustrate how PRISMA-E 2012 checklist can be applied to systematic reviews.
