Due to the need for timely assessment of new technologies, rapid reviews are of increasing importance for health technology assessment (HTA) and other commissioners (the person or group requesting the rapid review) of evidence synthesis. Collaboration between commissioners and those undertaking the rapid review is essential to:

1. confirm the rapid review methods chosen can address the requirements of the review within the time frame
2. ensure the limitations of the rapid review methods employed are agreed and reported on
This intermediate level short course will provide a clear understanding of possible approaches to a rapid review for commissioners of systematic reviews and those who undertake them.

Prerequisites: Previous attendance at the short course “Introduction to HTA” or equivalent knowledge of basic HTA principles is required.
