Resources

We have produced the following resources to help with the application and presentation of QUADAS-2

Domain specific guidance

The Background document (PDF, 548kB) provides general guidance on completing QUADAS-2.  Documents will follow shortly, giving more detailed guidance on how to assess the risk of bias and applicability for each of the domains included in QUADAS-2:

Database

The Access database which can be downloaded from this page contains the standard version of QUADAS-2.  You can use this database to assess the risk of bias and applicability of studies included in your review.

Completed QUADAS-2 Assessments

Examples of completed QUADAS-2 assessments for a variety of different reviews will shortly be available for download.

Template for tabular display

The word document containing an example tabular presentation of the QUADAS-2 assessments can be downloaded.  This can be edited to present the results of your QUADAS-2 assessments (you may need to cut and paste the appropriate symbols).
