Also known as JBI RAPid, Rapid Appraisal Protocol Internet Database

Publisher description: RAPid teaches students to critically appraise evidence using established data collection tools and offers them the possibility of publishing this appraisal in the form of a refereed report, in the RAPid Library. RAPid is based on the CATmaker program developed by the Centre for Evidence Based Medicine in Oxford, UK. Like CATmaker, RAPid is designed to organise, conduct and archive an evidence summary of a single study of an intervention or professional activity or of specific findings of a completed systematic review. Unlike CATmaker, RAPid is designed to include processes to appraise and summarise evidence from a wide range of sources including the results of quantitative and qualitative studies, expert opinion published by respected bodies and reports that draw on consensus.
