CASP and JOANNA BRIGGS (Use to appraise evidence in articles you are using in your research)
The tools above are complex and require a steep learning curve. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me for guidance.
The levels of evidence pyramid provides a way to visualize both the quality of evidence and the amount of evidence available. Evidence is broken down into three categories: Critical Appraisal (filtered), Experimental & Observational Studies (unfiltered), and Background Information. As you go down the pyramid, the amount of evidence increases as the quality of the evidence decreases.
