Identifying evidence on intervention effect

Rapid evidence assessments (REAs) were undertaken for each of the 17 interventions included in the prioritisation method. The REAs comprised:

  1. Searching for studies
  2. Reviewing studies
  3. Extracting relevant data from the studies
  4. Quality grading the studies

The results of the REA are reported separately for each intervention.
