What data is stored

DORIS provides up-to-date information on existing evidence, ongoing and planned evidence and other research relating to treatments for stroke.
 
Data is identified by systematic and regular searching of journals, conference proceedings, and electronic databases by the Cochrane Stroke Group.
 
Each item of evidence is categorised using multiple topics and/or intervention codes.
 
Details of Cochrane Stroke Group search methods are available here (click on Specialized Register)
 
  • Existing Evidence
  • Guidelines
     
    • Includes SIGN 108, 118 and 119 Guidelines, RCP 2012 Stroke Guidelines and NICE 2013 Stroke Guidelines.
       
    • The European Stroke Organisation (ESO) guidelines, the Australian Clinical Guidelines for Stroke Management 2010 and the Canadian Best Practice Recommendations for Stroke Care (4th Edition) are currently being added.
       
    • A direct link to the correct page of the full text of each guideline is provided, as is a note of the Evidence Level or link to the relevant Evidence Table.
       
    • It is important to note that each recommendation should be considered with reference to the supporting documentation provided within the full guideline.
       
  • Cochrane systematic reviews
     
    • Direct links to all Cochrane reviews are provided. For more information on Cochrane reviews, click here.
       
  • Other systematic reviews
     
    • Systematic reviews that have not been produced by the Cochrane Collaboration.
       
  • Randomised controlled trials (RCTs)
     
    • All RCTs relating to stroke which have been identified by the Cochrane Stroke Group as completed studies. All electronic sources should have a link to the relevant website.
       
  • Ongoing and Planned Evidence
  • Cochrane protocols
     
    • Cochrane protocols are systematic reviews in development. Direct links to all Cochrane protocols are provided.
       
  • Ongoing randomised controlled trials
     
    • All RCTs relating to stroke which have been identified by the Cochrane Stroke Group as planned or ongoing studies. All electronic sources should have a link to the relevant website.
       
  • Other Research
  • Other randomised controlled trials
     
    • This category contains studies which have been stopped, never started, and those on which further information cannot be found.
       
  • Uncertainties
     
    • A treatment uncertainty is a research question for which we know further research is required. Treatment uncertainties on DORIS have either come directly from recommendations for research in published Cochrane reviews, or from a James Lind Alliance priority setting project which identified the research questions of stroke survivors, carers and health professionals.
