Search Criteria and Results for Specific Topics
Each evidence analysis topic has a link to supporting evidence, where the Search Plan and Results can be found. Here, you can view when the search plan was performed, inclusion and exclusion criteria, search terms, databases that were searched and the excluded articles.
Below are a list of the recommendations and the related evidence analysis questions, with the link to each search plan. Some recommendations are supported by multiple conclusion statements and therefore have multiple search plans listed.
Consensus-rated recommendations were not developed using the evidence analysis process, but are based on consensus documents. Therefore, these recommendations do not have links to Search Plans.
