About us

Cochrane Injuries (now an inactive review group)  

For more than two decades, our work involved preparing, maintaining and promoting systematic reviews for the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of traumatic injury, including the emergency resuscitation of seriously injured and burned patients. We were one of many Cochrane Review Groups which are part of Cochrane, an international not-for-profit and independent organisation, dedicated to making up-to-date, accurate information about the effects of healthcare readily available worldwide. 

Cochrane produces and disseminates systematic reviews of healthcare interventions, and promotes the search for evidence in the form of clinical trials and other studies of interventions. 

The Cochrane Injuries editorial base was located at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, a designated WHO Collaborating Centre for Research and Training in Injury and Violence Prevention. Our international members included researchers, health care professionals and people using health services.

Due to changes in NIHR funding for evidence synthesis, this Cochrane Group is no longer active (effective 31 March 2023). We are so grateful for the work of our contributors - authors and peer reviewers alike.
