When the Best is the Enemy of the Good – The Nature of Research Evidence used in Systematic Reviews and Guidelines

presented by Marcel P.J.M. Dijkers, PhD, FACRM, Tamara Bushnik, PhD, and Mark Sherer, PhD, NCDDR's Task Force on Systematic Review and Guidelines, on October 28, 2008

The Task Force on Systematic Review and Guidelines develops and presents consensus/position statements and recommends strategies associated with systematic reviews/clinical practice guidelines in disability and rehabilitation research. The Task Force is made up of experienced NIDRR-funded researchers who volunteered to work in this capacity.

Beginning its work in 2006, the Task Force has developed two papers that are now ready for public review and comment. The first paper focused on Systematic vs. Traditional Reviews (Sept. 3, 2008) while this second paper looks at Evidence in Systematic Reviews (Oct. 28, 2008).

Copies of the papers will be disseminated following the introductory webcasts, and an online discussion will be held for feedback and dialogue about the papers.
