Dissemination of our reviews

Dissemination of our reviews is an essential part of increasing the reach of our evidence. We provide several options to our authors - JAMA synoposis, Cochrane Corners in Heart (BMJ) or OpenHeart (BMJ) and abridged versions of the review in Global Heart. Below are the most recent publications and other forms of dissemination we are aware of (last updated 28 February 2017).
