DELIVER is committed to the rapid translation of research findings and evidence into improvements in healthcare.

Through rapid evidence summaries, events and peer-reviewed publications, DELIVER informs and empowers health services with the the latest evidence they need to improve home-based healthcare and build their research capacity.


Rapid Evidence Summaries

Rapid Evidence Summaries provide concise summaries of the best available research evidence to answer a focussed question based on immediate clinical or health service needs.

Rapid Evidence Summaries involve collaborating with key stakeholders to ensure the relevance and applicability of the synthesised research evidence. Through a structured and iterative search process with clearly defined inclusion / exclusion criteria, key studies of the highest quality and level of evidence available are identified. Data from these studies are tabulated and narratively synthesised, and preliminary results presented to stakeholders prior to finalisation of a written report.
