Release Date: November 2013

Go to the Clinical Considerations section for suggestions for practice regarding the I statement.
Literature scans conducted in May 2018 in the MEDLINE, DARE, and PubMed databases and the Cochrane Library showed a lack of new evidence to support an updated systematic review on the topic at this time. See the Literature Surveillance Report under the Supporting Documents section of this webpage.
