Abstract

Systematic reviews are a powerful method for summarizing and synthesizing evidence and create a methodological opportunity for preparing data integration tables to enable review-level synthesis of the evidence. One of the main tasks of Cochrane Rehabilitation is to make it possible to improve the application of evidence-based clinical practice by all rehabilitation professionals, and to facilitate policy-makers in decision-making according to the best evidence. In this context arises the need to diffuse the high-quality information of Cochrane Systematic Reviews (CSR), through synthetic and easy-to-use messages for the different rehabilitation audiences. Cochrane Rehabilitation has recently launched the production of an eBook including all the evidence coming from the CSRtagged by its Review Committee as of rehabilitation interest with the final aim to enhance the application of evidence in clinical practice, medical education, health system policies, and in the community. This will be a powerful tool for the dissemination of evidence-based practice, education and knowledge, as well as to support political decisions for both effective organization and resource allocation in rehabilitation field.
