Interested in a tool to appraise all types of public health evidence?
Do you appraise public health evidence? Are you interested in a single tool that can appraise many different types of evidence and study designs? Join us for a webinar to learn about the MetaQAT.
This tool was developed by Public Health Ontario.
How can the MetaQAT help you?
Many different types of evidence and study designs may be used to answer a single public health question. The MetaQAT provides a single process that can be used to appraise these different types of evidence. This supports the use of evidence to formulate recommendations and develop public health actions.
The MetaQAT consists of a four domain appraisal framework that includes relevance, reliability, validity, and applicability. A suite of design-specific companion tools are included to provide further guidance to assess validity of common designs.
This webinar includes an overview of the MetaQAT by its developer, Dr. Laura Rosella, followed by a presentation from Dr. Catherine Bornbaum, who used the MetaQAT in conducting a systematic review.
