Cochrane Stroke vs COVID-19: Making it easy for people to find relevant COVID-19 evidence

Stroke is a leading cause of death and disability worldwide. The chances of having a stroke increase with age and older people also appear to suffer greater consequences from COVID-19. There may be a link between COVID-19 and new strokes, so healthcare professionals may be caring for people who have both COVID-19 and stroke.

Cochrane Strokeheard from stroke care professionals and researchers that it was difficult to find relevant material amongst the thousands of articles available. To address this need, they collated useful resources for stroke care teams on their website. In addition, they made it easier for people to find relevant publications themselves by creating search strategies for stroke and Covid-19 for major databases including Google, MEDLINE, Pubmed, ClinicalTrials.gov, and The Cochrane Library.
