CIHR Profiles Paper by Dr. Kelly O’Brien on Scoping Reviews

CIHR profiles resources to help provide a better understanding of knowledge synthesis. In one article, authors propose recommendations to clarify and enhance scoping study methodology using examples from the field of rehabilitation (Levac D, Colquhoun H, and O’Brien KK. Scoping studies: advancing the methodology. Implementation Science 2010, 5:69). Used in combination with the original Arksey and O’Malley framework (Arksey H, O’Malley L: Scoping studies: Towards a Methodological Framework. Int J Soc Res Methodol 2005, 8:19-32) these resources may be helpful to those interested in conducting a scoping study.
