Abstract: Article reviews the history, goals, internal organization, and functioning of Cochrane Rehabilitation. 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. Cochrane is organized in different groups with different aims: (1) Review Groups manage systematic reviews production, (2) Method Groups develop the best methodology to produce evidence, (and 3) Centers and Fields provide knowledge translation with a national/regional or topic-related focus, respectively. Rehabilitation is a cross-sectional topic that includes different health conditions of interest to many Cochrane Review Groups. Consequently, rehabilitation is considered by Cochrane as a “Field,” a term used for groups that focus on health issues and/or interventions of importance to specific populations. Thus, Cochrane has created a new Cochrane Rehabilitation Field to strengthen this culture of knowledge translation. Cochrane Rehabilitation aims to improve the methods for evidence synthesis, to make them compatible with the needs of people with disabilities and daily clinical practice in rehabilitation.
