A multicomponent decision tool for prioritising the updating of systematic reviews
In the absence of a consensus on appropriate methods for deciding when to update systematic reviews, a decision tool was developed to replace an approach based on an arbitrary and rigid time period with a priority based approach. The tool broadly consists of three criteria: clinical question answered or no longer relevant, new relevant factors to consider, and availability of new studies. The decision tool can help identify reviews most sensitive to change and thus minimise unnecessary updating and waste of resources
