    Biases? Flaws? Limitations

Consider and comment:
   What does a quick evaluation of your search results indicate? Are there many relevant papers cited by
     your search? What are the most beneficial databases?
   What is your evaluation of the strength of the evidence presented in the selected paper(s)? Is the evidence
     presented strong, moderately strong, neutral or weak if therapy, prognosis or etiology papers were
   Does the evidence support the intervention, diagnosis procedure or diagnostic tool discussed, the
     hypothesized etiology, etc.?
   Sections 3c-g, 5b-e, 6-8, and section 9 of the Critical Appraisal Guide

Impact statement
    How will this evidence affect or influence your clinical practice?
    Can you make a recommendation using the evidence and your clinical expertise as to the application of this
     particular evidence? (Is the evidence solid enough and is the study strong enough to apply the evidence to
     your patient and practice? Should further research be done for any aspect of the evidence summarized?
     How should it be considered with patient values? Is this evidence practical to implement in light of your
     (future) clinical practice?)
