Objective: To engage in a priority-setting exercise with both clinicians and consumers to determine systematic reviews of highest priority to update. Study Design & Setting: The US Satellite of the Cochrane Pregnancy & Childbirth Group (US-PCG) narrowed a list of over 600 review titles due for updating down to 97 review titles based on US relevance. The US-PCG then used the Delphi method to explore consensus on which titles to prioritize for updating. In Round 1, participants self-identified as a clinician/researcher or consumer, and then ranked titles into “high”, “medium”, and “low” priority groups. In Round 2, participants were given Round 1 results and asked to rank their top 5 titles. Results were analyzed within and between groups.
