EBRSR: An Introduction
Welcome to the 16th edition of the EBRSR. The EBRSR now includes in-depth reviews of well over 2000 studies including 1,431 randomized controlled trials. Parts of the EBRSR have been translated into a number of languages.
We are grateful to the Canadian Stroke Network (CSN), a Canadian federal centre of excellence, for providing the funding for the EBRSR (funding will be ending March 31, 2014). Special thanks to Dr. Tony Hakim, Katie Lafferty, and Nicol Korner-Bitensky at the CSN.
Many readers have e-mailed us with their comments and we encourage you do so as well. We also encourage you to e-mail us if you have any concerns regarding our analyses. This helps us to ensure our data and conclusions are the best possible.
