In terms of my personal experience through this project, despite the benefits of using the rapid critical appraisal, I cannot speak for the rapidness of the process. At first, due to my own level of interest in the sources that I had located, I found myself reading through each article. As time did not allow for this, I had to adjust my method to include reading the abstract and then setting the article aside. Once I had numerous articles that were not excluded through reading the abstract, I was then able to give these articles better attention. I used the abstract reading to narrow the list and then focused on the methods and results to determine how much attention to give each article. I believe that this would have been a much quicker and smoother stage in the project had I have went straight to this method from the very beginning.
