Pharmacy Databases Tutorials: Cochrane Library


Why Cochrane Library?

The Cochrane Library is a collection of databases that contain high-quality, independent evidence to inform healthcare decision-making. Chief among them is The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, whose reviews represent the highest level of evidence on which to base clinical treatment decisions. Other included databases are Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects (i.e., summaries of other reviews not produced under Cochrane's auspices); The Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (a registry of clinical trials); The Cochrane Methodology Register (methods used in controlled trials); Health Technology Assessment Database (studies of the medical, social, ethical and economic implications of healthcare interventions); NHS [National Health Service, UK] Economic Evaluation Database (economic evaluations); and About The Cochrane Collaboration (information on groups that comprise "The Cochrane Collaboration").
