The purpose of this pilot study is to determine the feasibility of running a full-scale trial that compares two formats of a shortened systematic review to a full-length systematic review to be used in clinical decision-making.
Two shortened systematic review formats were developed to enhance their use in clinical decision making. An online randomized controlled trial is planned to make comparisons of the shortened formats to a full-length systematic review. To prepare for the full-scale trial, a pilot study will be conducted to test methods and procedures in order to refine the processes.
