A number of barriers have been identified to getting evidence into policy. In particular, a lack of policy relevance and lack of timeliness have been identified as causing tension between researchers and policy makers. Rapid reviews are used increasingly as an approach to address timeliness, however, there is a lack of consensus on the most effective review methods and they do not necessarily address the need of policy makers. This presentation will discuss an approach we developed in our work with the Scottish Government’s Review of maternity and neonatal services to produce collaborative, targeted and efficient evidence reviews. Key to this was agreeing a framework to structure the analysis and close collaboration between policy makers, healthcare professionals and service users.
