COVID-19 Evidence Synthesis Bulletin – July
Friday, 06 August, 2021
In this month’s evidence synthesis bulletin, we highlight the ways in which we are helping NPHET in their decision making by reviewing topics such as:
- rapid review of public health guidance for residential care facilities in the context of COVID-19
- international review of public health measures and strategies to limit the spread of COVID-19
- rapid review of public health guidance on protective measures for vulnerable groups in the context of COVID-19
The Health Information and Quality Authority’s (HIQA) Health Technology Assessment (HTA) team has published and submitted a number of reports and advice at the request of the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) and related groups tasked with the national COVID-19 response.
This work helps ensure rapid access to the best available evidence relevant to SARS-CoV-2 to inform decision-making at each stage of the pandemic.
To easily summarise these reports, the HTA team has launched an evidence synthesis bulletin, which details all the work completed in the previous month.
If you would like to find out more about the work of HIQA and the HTA team in their response to COVID-19, you can here.
The bulletin will be updated monthly and will be shared across our social media platforms.
If you would like to receive the bulletin to your inbox directly, you can request the bulletin from firstname.lastname@example.org.
