Stefano Negrini on the Cochrane Council

Prof. Stefano Negrini, scientific director of Isico, was recently elected as a representative on the Cochrane Council. Cochrane is an independent, global non-profit network of researchers, professionals, patients and people interested in health.

This appointment is an important recognition of the role that Prof. Negrini has played in the organisation since 2016 as Director of the Cochrane Rehabilitation Field. Cochrane Rehabilitation, which is headquartered at the University of Brescia, works globally to improve the quality of scientific evidence produced in the field of rehabilitation. Negrini is also an author for the review groups Cochrane Back and Neck and Cochrane Stroke.

Cochrane is a global independent network of 37,000 individuals from over 130 countries all over the world, many of whom are world leaders in their fields. Cochrane groups are situated  in some of the world’s most respected academic and medical institutions.

Their aim is to work together to produce credible, accessible health information that is free from commercial sponsorship and other conflicts of interest, so that healthcare decisions are taken in the best possible way, by really thinking about people’s health. Over the past 20 years, Cochrane, through its systematic reviews, has helped to transform the way healthcare decisions are made.

“The Cochrane Council was created in 2016 to guarantee various groups a platform for  discussion and assessment of high-level issues and at the same time to stimulate new areas of research” comments Prof. Negrini. “Our group’s particular task is to promote the culture and application of scientific evidence-based medicine (EBM) within rehabilitation, while also promoting rehabilitation within the Cochrane world”.
