Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials The Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) is a bibliographic database that provides a highly concentrated source of reports of randomized controlled trials. Records contain the list of authors, the title of the article, the source, volume, issue, page numbers, and, in many cases, a summary of the article (abstract). They do not contain the full text of the article.
Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects The Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects (DARE) contains details of systematic reviews that evaluate the effects of healthcare interventions and the delivery and organisation of health services. DARE also contains reviews of the wider determinants of health such as housing, transport, and social care where these impact directly on health, or have the potential to impact on health.
Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews Cochrane Reviews are systematic reviews of primary research in human health care and health policy, and are internationally recognised as the highest standard in evidence-based health care. They may either investigate the effects of interventions for prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation, or alternatively may assess the accuracy of a diagnostic test for a given condition in a specific patient group and setting. The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR) is the leading resource for systematic reviews in health care. The CDSR includes Cochrane Reviews (the systematic reviews) and protocols for Cochrane Reviews as well as editorials.
NHS Economic Evaluation Database The NHS Economic Evaluation Database (EED) contains economic evaluations of healthcare interventions. Economic evaluations are studies in which a comparison of two or more interventions or care alternatives is undertaken and in which both the costs and outcomes of the alternatives are examined. This includes cost-benefit analyses, cost-utility analyses, and cost-effectiveness analyses.
Health Technology Assessments The Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Database brings together details of completed and ongoing health technology assessments from around the world. Database content is supplied by members of the International Network of Agencies for Health Technology Assessment (INAHTA) and other HTA organisations internationally. The scope for inclusion is broad, encompassing any study designated as a health technology assessment by the contributing organisation.
Cochrane Methodology Register The Cochrane Methodology Register (CMR) is a database of studies relevant to the methods of systematic reviews of healthcare and social interventions. The register includes journal articles, book chapters, conference proceedings, conference abstracts and reports of ongoing methodological research. Relevant records are identified by the UK Cochrane Centre through handsearching and sources including MEDLINE.
