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.
Updating existing reviews
Review authors may be invited to update their review. An invitation to update will normally be made if the clinical guideline the review informs is due to be updated.
To apply to update your existing review outside of a guideline update, write to Dr. Helen Wakeford and explain why your review should be updated according to the criteria set out in this tool:
