The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR) is the leading source of peer-reviewed systematic reviews in healthcare. Each Cochrane Review is a systematic review that has been prepared and supervised by a Cochrane Review Group (editorial team). It attempts to identify, appraise and synthesize all the empirical evidence that meets pre-specified eligibility criteria to answer a specific research question. Researchers conducting systematic reviews use explicit, systematic methods that are selected with a view aimed at minimizing bias, to produce more reliable findings to inform decision-making. This database is updated quarterly.
Specialized PubMed searches designed to connect clinicians to evidence-based literature. Results display available systematic reviews as well as research articles arranged by 5 clinical areas--Etiology, Diagnosis, Prognosis, Clinical prediction guidelines, & Therapy.
Provides information for consumers and clinicians on prevention and treatment of diseases and conditions and specializes in reviews of clinical effectiveness research, with easy-to-read summaries for consumers as well as full technical reports. Clinical guides are available on the Contents tab.
