How we rate the quality of research relating to interventions.
Where there are a number of systematic reviews relevant to a single intervention, EMMIE scores are based on the findings from all of the reviews and the strongest score (for each of the EMMIE elements) is identified and reported as the EMMIE Toolkit Quality/Effect score. Therefore, ratings are not necessarily derived from a single review and might reflect the reported findings from multiple systematic reviews.
Ratings from individual reviews are also made available at the end of the intervention summary page to guide users to specific reviews if they are seeking further information on single EMMIE elements. For example, one review might provide more detailed information on implementation and users may then use the link to read the individual systematic review which provides the most information on how to do the intervention.
