Cochrane Rehabilitation Official Launch



ESPRM is very happy and proud to announce the Cochrane Rehabilitation recognition and official launch on December 16th 2016


230 collaborators from 49 countries join to announce the official launch of Cochrane Rehabilitation

Cochrane Rehabilitation is born within the Evidence Based Committee of ESPRM, that started the creation of a Cochrane Rehabilitation Field in 2014. Cochrane Rehabilitation is a global network of individuals, involved in the production, dissemination, and implementation of evidence-informed clinical practice in rehabilitation. 
The new Cochrane Field will promote and advocate for using the best evidence within the rehabilitation world, including physical therapy, speech and occupational therapy, prosthetics and orthotics, psychology, adapted physical activity and sports, and pharmacological treatments, to inform clinical decision-making. 

With more than 230 collaborators from 49 countries expressing their willingness to join, Cochrane Rehabilitation members can contribute individually or work in teams with other colleagues to review and strengthen methodology relevant to evidence-informed clinical practice within the field of rehabilitation, combining the best available evidence as gathered by high quality Cochrane systematic reviews, with their own clinical expertise and the values of patients. 

ESPRM foresees that Cochrane Rehabilitation will help clarify and strengthen the PRM knowledge base, to enhance the image and credibility of PRM, to compare existing global PRM knowledge with other specialties (may happen indirectly) and to respond to questions and concerns that may arise as the practice of PRM evolves by reviewing existing literature. ESPRM will contribute to Cochrane Rehabilitation not only participating in reviews of PRM interest and suggesting areas of knowledge gaps which need a "Cochrane review” but also facilitating Cochrane Rehabilitation dissemination and educational activities. The first training events will take place in Vilnius, Lithuania, at the ESPRM 2018 congress, May 1-6 2018 ).

ESPRM is available, capable, and eager to collaborate!
