Introducing Cochrane Clinical Answers

Cochrane systematic reviews are relied on for providing evidence-based information for patient care. They are often considered the “gold standard” for systematic reviews because of their rigorous research methodology. However, it can be time consuming to read an entire Cochrane systematic review and find the most pertinent facts that can be applied to patient care. The new Cochrane Clinical Answers makes it easier to utilize the findings from Cochrane Systematic reviews in the clinical setting.

Clinical Answers summarizes the most important elements from Cochrane systematic reviews, while providing necessary information for patient care.  For each entry in Clinical Answers you will find a clinical question (e.g. In people with acute asthma, what are the effects of magnesium sulfate?), a summary of the review’s findings (the clinical answer), and data for each outcome measure.

In Cochrane Clinical Answers you can browse questions by topic (e.g. blood disorders, cancer, child health, etc.) or use a search box to search for your specific clinical question.
