Rapid responses

This entry is not available in Français

Decision makers are sometimes faced with issues that need responses within hours or days. In these circumstances, a policy brief may not be needed, or preparing a policy brief may not be possible. Nonetheless, to ensure that their responses are well-informed, decision makers need rapid access to research evidence that has been both appraised and contextualised. This requires clarifying the question being asked, finding relevant research (ideally a systematic review), and reliably summarising and communicating the research findings.

We have developed a set of resources for preparing rapid responses to policymakers in need of research evidence. These resources include a template for rapid responses.
