Objectives: This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (overview). The objectives are as follows:. To summarise and appraise the evidence from Cochrane Reviews assessing the effects of interventions for the recovery and/or the improvement of walking in people after stroke. We will conduct an overview of Cochrane Reviews involving stakeholders to:. provide accessible high-quality evidence on the effects of interventions aiming to recover and/or improve walking in people after stroke; summarise the evidence of the effects of included interventions; clearly present to readers relevant, high-quality evidence of effective interventions; and direct them to original reviews. A secondary objective will be to explore the outcomes reported in Cochrane Reviews assessing the effects of interventions to improve walking; how different measures are combined in reviews; and how this varies between reviews.
