Our client-focused approach allows us to produce fit-for-purpose, and consumer or patient-focus type reports based on our clients' needs. For example, protocols, critiques, search strategies, literature searches, critical appraisals of scientific literature, data analyses, economic and cost-effectiveness analyses, input based on local knowledge...etc.
