ROBIS: A Risk of Bias Assessment Tool for Systematic Reviews

ROBIS is a tool designed to assess risk of bias in systematic reviews. ROBIS differs from other tools that assess systematic reviews as it was specifically designed to assess risk of bias, while other tools focus on broader goals such as critical appraisal and quality assessment. The use of ROBIS can lead to more robust recommendations and improvements in public health and patient care.
