Briefly summarised - project description
Owners, providers and users of the Norwegian health care and welfare services seek answers to a variety of research questions. We at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health (NIPH) address some of these by producing our own systematic reviews and HTA reports. These are, however, only a small share of all systematic reviews produced worldwide. In 2010 it was estimated that on average, 11 systematic reviews are published every day!.
In addition to producing systematic reviews, we at the NIPH publish our own summaries of systematic reviews with themes and results that may be of interest to owners, providers and users of the Norwegian health care and welfare services. These 2-page summaries are called «Briefly summarised».
