Rapid reviews are accelerated forms of evidence synthesis. Several research initiatives have gathered information to describe the current forms of rapid reviews that are being produced by different agencies around the world.The aim of this project is to assess whether different streamlined search strategies as used in rapid reviews result in different conclusions and quality of evidence ratings compared with the gold standard of a Cochrane review.
