Protocol for a focused after-action review on evidence-based decision-making for selected COVID-19 response measures
Technical report – 22 Sep 2021
This ECDC protocol for a focused after-action review (AAR) on evidence-based decision-making (EBDM) for selected COVID-19 response measures uses the standard AAR/IAR approach but focuses on a single category or function – EBDM – as opposed to a whole range of activities. We consider the decision (or group of decisions) made as the event to be reviewed, whereby the event comprises both the process that leads to the decision outcome and the impact of that outcome. It follows a case study-based research design. In the social sciences, a case study approach looks at one selected event in depth and explores what can be learned about broader, systemic interrelationships and linkages. Due to the complex impact of COVID-19 on all aspects of society, an investigation of the intricacies of EBDM demands a focused approach.
