Priority setting

During 2014, Cochrane Oral Health undertook an extensive prioritisation exercise across 8 areas of dentistry to consider the clinical importance of 234 existing systematic review titles. 

725 active authors were invited to provide Cochrane Oral Health with an initial Top 10 ranking of clinically important reviews for their area of dentistry.

Using these provisional rankings for discussion, 135 clinical experts from 8 internationally expert panels defined a core portfolio of priority reviews, find out more on our priority reviews page.The core portfolio consists of 81 existing titles to be maintained by Cochrane Oral Health, and a further 15 new systematic review titles.

A new priority setting exercise is underway, and the results will be published in 2020.
