Early in the COVID-19 pandemic, primary care doctors (general practitioners) and nurses had many questions. Cochrane Belgium wanted to create clear answers to primary care clinicians’ most frequent questions about COVID-19, based on scientific evidence, making the answers relevant to Belgium.

A university collected questions that were relevant to primary care in Belgium. Masters students studying medicine worked in pairs to draft answers in the Dutch language. Cochrane Belgium checked and validated each of these rapid answers to make sure they were accurate, consistent and evidence-based. They also developed criteria to assess each of the answers.
