New Reviews

The Cochrane Injuries Group welcomes proposals for new reviews which will be used to inform a clinical practice guideline.  Contact Dr. Helen Wakeford to apply.  Please provide the following information:

  • documentation that the new review will be included in a clinical guideline;
  • details of the commissioning organisation or funder of the review; and
  • the date the review must be completed, and the date the guideline is due to be published.
