Why is this project important?

Fever is a common response from the body’s immune system following infection and is often managed with antipyretic medication or other treatment methods such as homeopathy. The need to consider non-antipyretic treatment options for fever management and the high prevalence of the use of homeopathy in general for fever management shows the need to map the current research evidence on this topic. Systematic scoping reviews can be very useful for mapping research evidence and are frequently used to identify research gaps, clarify key concepts, and report on the types of evidence that address and inform practice in a research field.
