Rapid methods including network meta-analysis to produce evidence in clinical decision support: a decision analysis

ConclusionsThe transfer of knowledge to practice could benefit from faster systematic reviewing methods. The results in this preliminary assessment suggest that an improved rapid NMA approach might replace gold standard NMAs. Decision analysis could be used to compare evidence summarisation methods.

Although structured diagnostic interviews have been developed for research studies to aid in the diagnosis of pediatric bipolar disorder (BD), these tools are not practical to use in clinical practice, because they are lengthy, costly, and not widely available. As a result, simpler diagnostic aids are needed to help identify children who may have pediatric BD. This presentation aims to discuss alternative ways of identifying children with BD.
