COVID-19 has driven the need for timely evidence to inform decision-making. In this webinar, we will discuss the importance of rapid reviews during COVID-19 and present case examples of how the MAGIC team responded to queries from DSEN policy-makers through rapid reviews. We will also discuss methodological challenges associated with the conduct of rapid reviews on COVID-19. 

Learning Objectives: 

  1. To define rapid reviews 
  2. To identify "how to" conduct rapid reviews 
  3. To identify methodological challenges of rapid review conduct during COVID-19
