COVID-19 Rapid Evidence Service

The National Collaborating Centre for Methods and Tools (NCCMT) is supporting national, provincial/territorial, and local/regional responses to COVID-19 in Canada by conducting rapid reviews on priority topics identified by decision makers. As part of the Rapid Evidence Service, the NCCMT conducts rigorous searches and appraisal of the available literature on key questions about COVID-19; provides summaries and key messages of the literature; and identifies knowledge gaps. Topics addressed thus far include: opioids, alcohol consumption, reducing transmission, and cohort isolation. New reviews are being conducted weekly, so check back regularly to see what’s new.
