Hello, and welcome to the April 2021 issue of the Cochrane Library app.
This month’s edition includes a variety of topics such as discontinuing long-term antidepressant use, psychosocial interventions for self-harm, lifestyle advice for people with infertility, progestogens to prevent miscarriage, probiotics to prevent gestational diabetes, digital interventions to manage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, exercise training for bronchiectasis, and preventing sharps injuries and splash exposures in healthcare workers.
Our main review this month is ‘Interventions for increasing solid organ donor registration'. There is a global need to increase the number of available organs for transplantation. A solution for increasing the number of available organs for transplantation is to encourage more individuals to register a commitment for deceased organ donation. However, the percentage of the population registered for organ donation remains low in many countries. Authors from the Cochrane Kidney and Transplant Group evaluate the benefits and harms of various interventions used to increase deceased organ donor registration.
The abridged versions of these reviews are available in this issue. Visit www.cochranelibrary.com to read the full versions.
