HTA and related products (e.g. Cochrane Reviews)

Last revised: 

Besides the multitude of existing HTA products a multitude of related products does exist too. Based on the philosophies of different disciplines or specialties, contexts, purposes, institutional aims etc. the diverse related products were developped. These are for example:

  • Cochrane reviews, Campbell reviews, JBI reviews,
  • Systematic reviews,
  • Clinical practice guidelines.

This sub-division presents selected publications on these related products, and on their commonalities and differences to HTA reports:
