Call to Cochrane Rehabilitation Community: Cochrane Review Tagging

Help wanted! The Cochrane Rehabilitation Reviews Committee is in the process of tagging all rehabilitation relevant reviews in the Cochrane database.  The purpose of this work is to make these reviews more accessible to people involved in the work of rehabilitation.  Eventually we may explore categorising these reviews by intervention and outcome types, but to begin with, we first have to find them.

We are crowd sourcing the work of tagging reviews.  We have set an online database where users can sign up to contribute to the work of tagging reviews.  A minimum of two people from different professional backgrounds will tag each review, and differences of opinion in tagging will be resolved by the Cochrane Rehabilitation Review Committee.  Reviews relevant to rehabilitation will appear on the Cochrane Rehabilitation website under our section on “Evidence”.

What is involved?

To see the kind of work that is involved, check out our instruction video for Cochrane Review taggers, click here.

Who can be involved?

We are wanting input from rehabilitation experts who might be physicians, nurses, or allied health professionals.

How do I get involved?

To get involved, please complete our registration form.

The registration form request that you include a CV.  This does not have to be highly detailed – just enough to give us an indication of your background and clinical experience.

Many thanks!
