Key questions need to be devised before the results of studies are extracted and pooled. The key questions should drive the data to be extracted and pooled and not be driven by them.
  • PICOTS An understanding of PICOTS and the analytic framework is needed before clear, concise, and relevant key questions can be written. Which of the following terms is correctly defined? Incorrect. The P stands for population, which the systematic review seeks to study. Correct. The I stands for intervention, meaning the intervention that is being assessed in the systematic review.

Incorrect. This is one of the vital functions that key informants perform, but there is a better answer. Correct. Key informants perform all three vital functions. They formulate key questions that address real-world dilemmas, provide context to help discern content area and applicability, and ensure transparency in the process.
  • Types of Key Informants Which of the following groups are not considered to be key informants in the Effective Health Care Program? Incorrect. Clinicians, such as physicians, pharmacists, and nurses, are key informants in the Effective Health Care Program. Incorrect. Patients are key informants in the Effective Health Care Program. Correct. Although industry representatives are important stakeholders in the health-care system, they are not usually considered to be key informants. They can, however, submit scientific information packets and comment on research projects when open for public commentary.
  • The Public Commentary Process Which of the following statements is true about how the public commentary process relates to the topic-refinement process? Correct. Interested parties can comment on as many projects as they like. This ensures transparency and relevance. Incorrect. Interested parties can comment on as many projects as they like.

  • Characteristics of Refinement Topics Topics for refinement should have all of the following characteristics, except : Incorrect. Topics for refinement should be high priority. Incorrect. Topics for refinement should be feasible. Correct. Topics for refinement should be not duplicative. Given the plethora of potential topics that could be refined, refining topics that are only confirmatory should not be a priority.
  • Summary
  • Author This interactive quiz augments the module on topic refinement, which describes how to refine key questions for comparative effectiveness reviews (CERs). The module was prepared by C. Michael White, Pharm.D., FCP, FCCP, a member of the University of Connecticut/Hartford Hospital Evidence-based Practice Center. The module is based on chapter 2 in version 1.0 of the Methods Reference Guide for Effectiveness and Comparative Effectiveness Reviews (available at: http://effectivehealthcare.ahrq.gov/repFiles/2007_10DraftMethodsGuide.pdf).
