The Cochrane Collaboration

The Cochrane Collaboration offers published systematic reviews of best evidence on healthcare interventions. Systematic reviews are integral to the collation of evidence to inform clinical practice guidelines. They are also an integral part of health technology assessments, for cost-effectiveness healthcare interventions. Cochrane also has a formal consumer-
patient and citizen group that informs their work.

Open Access Databases

  • The Number Needed to Treat (NNT)
    Created by a group of physicians that have developed a framework and rating system to evaluate therapies based on their patient-important benefits and harms as well as a system to evaluate diagnostics by patient sign, symptom, lab test or study.
    They only use the highest quality, evidence-based studies (frequently, but not always Cochrane Reviews), and accept no outside funding or advertisements.
  • National Guidelines Clearinghouse  Icon
  • TRIP Database
    Medical search engine with emphasis on evidence based medicine (EBM) and clinical guidelines and queries, including content from Cochrane and Bandolier.
