Engagement in healthcare systematic reviews

In August, 2021, our team, led by Peter Tugwell, Vivian Welch, and Alex Todhunter-Brown, received funding for a 4 year project to:

  1. Identify, map, and synthesize qualitative and quantitative findings related to engagement in evidence syntheses
  2. Explore perspectives on how engagement in evidence syntheses promotes health equity
  3. Develop equity-oriented guidance on methods for engagement in evidence synthesis
  4. Develop guidance on methods for evaluating engagement in evidence syntheses
  5. Develop a guideline for reporting engagement in evidence syntheses (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) extension).

The protocol for this project was published in August, 2023: Protocol for the development of guidance for collaborator and partner engagement in health care evidence syntheses

The project includes 4 sequential steps:
