Risk of Bias 2 Assessment Tool: Heart publishes its first review with RoB 2

We are excited to announce that the first Cochrane Review to publish using RoB 2 through the Cochrane pilot, using RoB 2 functionality built into RevMan Web and the Cochrane Library has now been published: Physical activity interventions for people with congenital heart disease.

Authors Craig Williams and Curtis Wadey

Just prior to the publication of the review, we talked with the authors Craig Williams and Curtis Wadey from the Children's Health and Exercise Research Centre at the University of Exeter, UK, about the tool and their experience of using it. Marianna Kaye, Assistant Managing Editor with Cochrane Heart, is asking four questions which are presented as individual podcasts below. 

Firstly, can you give us an overview of what your review was looking at and what the main findings were?

Your review was the first we have published using the new risk of bias 2 tool. What was your experience?

Were there any particular challenges?

And finally, any tips for authors on using the RoB2 tool in the future?
