New guidance on using the Risk Of Bias In Non-randomised Studies - of Interventions (ROBINS-I) tool

The Risk of Bias In Non-randomised Studies – of Interventions (ROBINS-I) tool allows authors to evaluate the risk of bias in the results of non-randomised studies that compare the effects of interventions (NRSI). The ROBINS-I tool was originally developed by members of the Cochrane Bias Methods Group and the Cochrane Non-Randomised Studies Methods Group.

In this web clinic, Dr Kerry Dwan will introduce new guidance to help Cochrane authors and editors plan for the use of ROBINS-I in their protocol and report the results in their review. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion
