This Critical Appraisal Tool has been designed to assist Specialists and Managers within Peel Public Health in choosing the appropriate critical appraisal tool to assess the quality of research literature.
This document describes the hierarchy of evidence, provides recommended critical appraisal tools and describes the process for starting your critical appraisal of the evidence. This document does not describe how to critically appraise literature that has not been peer-reviewed.
Critical appraisal of literature is described under the Critical Appraisal Tool – Process and Tools Instruction Chart for Specialists and Managers.
