Systematic reviews of Diagnostic Test Accuracy
The methods and processes for systematically reviewing a diagnostic tests are new within Cochrane and are still being rolled out across the collaboration. The UGPD group is already supporting the development of several reviews of diagnostic tests and we are unable to take on any additional DTA topics at the moment.
Systematic reviews of Interventions
Due to capacity issues, we are accepting a very few number (<5) of new title registrations per year. You are welcome to contact the group if you are interested in authoring a topic of your choice but please bear in mind we are only likely to accept topics which are clinically important and have not already been covered in another review.
The group has identified one priority topic at the moment (Fluid therapy protocols in people with acute pancreatitis), that is being developed by a review team and not open to new authors.
