Telerehabilitation for people with low vision | Cochrane

Review question This systematic review aimed to evaluate the benefits of providing remote vision rehabilitation services for people with low vision via telerehabilitation, which uses an Internet-based approach rather than the usual office-based consultations. The main outcome of interest is vision-related quality of life, but we also are interested in visual function measures such as reading speed, as well as compliance with scheduled sessions and patient satisfaction.

Exercise therapy for fatigue in multiple sclerosis | Cochrane

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease affecting over 1.3 million people globally. MS is characterized by diffuse damage to the central nervous system, leading to a wide range of different physical and cognitive (mental processes) symptoms. One of the most prominent and disabling symptoms of MS is fatigue. Currently, there is no effective medicine to reduce fatigue in people with MS. Treatment with exercise may be a way to reduce fatigue either directly by changing how the body works, for example hormonal function, or indirectly through improved physical activity and general health.

Intention to treat analysis versus per protocol analysis of trial data

Researchers evaluated the effectiveness of a self management programme for arthritis on the overall function of patients with osteoarthritis in primary care. A randomised controlled trial study design was used. The intervention was attendance at six sessions of self management of arthritis, plus an education booklet. The control group received the education booklet only. Participants were patients aged 50 years or more who had osteoarthritis of the hips or knees (or both) and pain or disability (or both). In total, 812 patients were recruited and randomised to the intervention (n=406) or control (n=406).1

Rehabilitation as part of treatment for adults with a broken wrist | Cochrane

Particularly in older women, a broken wrist (comprising a fracture at the lower end of the radius, one of the two forearm bones) can result from a fall onto an outstretched hand. Treatment usually includes putting the bone fragments back in place, if badly displaced, and immobilising the wrist in a plaster cast. Surgery may be considered for more seriously displaced fractures. Rehabilitation with interventions such as exercises and other physical interventions is used to help prevent complications, such as stiffness and aching, restore function and speed up recovery.

Psychological treatments for chronic pain involving damage or disease to nerves responsible for pain | Cochrane

Many people experience pain from an injury or disease that goes away within three months, but for some people the pain continues. When the pain involves changes to nerves we call the pain 'neuropathic'. Although the condition is increasingly common, the treatments we have help only a few people. Following unsuccessful surgical or pharmacological treatment, people with chronic pain may be offered psychologically-based rehabilitation to improve their quality of life. While we know that this can help people with other types of chronic pain, this treatment for neuropathic pain alone has received less research attention.
