Sex Stratified Analyses in Norwegian Treatment Studies - Protocol for Scoping Review
We will conduct a scoping review of the use of sex and gender-based analyses in Norwegian research on the effect of treatment of selected diseases.
We will conduct a scoping review of the use of sex and gender-based analyses in Norwegian research on the effect of treatment of selected diseases. The primary focus of the review will be to look at research conducted in Norway. Studies conducted in >1 country may be included if Norwegian patients are included and at least one author is affiliated with a Norwegian institution. Published research within the time frame 2017 – 2022 will be included.
A scoping review is a type of evidence synthesis that displays the available evidence relevant to a broader research question, and that narratively describes existing literature on a topic. Scoping reviews may be used to identify knowledge gaps.
To identify relevant research articles, we will perform a systematic literature search. Titles and abstracts will be considered according to the inclusion and exclusion criteria. References will be screened by two researchers independently, first by title and abstract and subsequently in full text, for inclusion and exclusion. Included studies will be coded in the EPPI reviewer software according to a predefined framework.
The results of the review will be presented in a report published by the Norwegian Institute of Public Health (www.fhi.no). The report will be available in Norwegian
