SILVA, Marcus Tolentino. Health technology assessment: guidelines for rapid-review. BIS, Bol. Inst. Saúde (Impr.) [online]. 2013, vol.14, n.2, pp. 159-164. ISSN 1518-1812.

This paper aims to introduce the rapid-review guidelines for health technology assessment published by the Ministry of Health of Brazil. Typically, this approach supports the decision making of health managers on acquisition, diffusion and obsolescence stages of health technologies. The seven steps of rapid-review were also described: framing the question, search strategy, search for secondary sources, search for primary sources, critical appraisal of evidence validity, synthesis and interpretation of results, and making recommendations.

Palabras llave : Biomedical Technology Assessment; Technical Report; Guidelines.
