We used the quality score of Downs and Black to assess papers because it enables assessment of studies of various design.16 After initial piloting on five papers to assess inter rater reliability, we determined that the statistical items on the score should be independently scored by a statistician (AW).

One of three pairs of peer assessors (DO/MG, JC/CV, FM/FS) scored each included study and extracted data.
