The Medical Library is pleased to announce the subscription of two new databases; Cochrane Library & Cochrane Clinical Keys (CCAs) to conduct effective systematic review search.
The Cochrane Library (ISSN 1465-1858) is a collection of six databases that contain different types of high-quality, independent evidence to inform healthcare decision-making, and a seventh database that provides information about Cochrane groups.
The six databases include:
- Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR)
- Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL)
- Cochrane Methodology Register (CMR)
- Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects (DARE)
- Health Technology Assessment Database (HTA)
- NHS Economic Evaluation Database (EED)
You can also view the highlighted reviews, editorials and special collections. Additionally, there are Podcasts from the Cochrane Library for audio listeners. There are FAQs for users to refer to when using the Cochrane Library website. You can access Cochrane Library here. Alternatively visit NTU library databases.
Cochrane Clinical Answers (CCAs) is a derivative product of Cochrane Library. The content is highly targeted for healthcare practitioners and professionals, and other informed health care decision-makers across 20 disciplines. As of February 2015, 645 CCAs have been published and a target of 1000 CCAs by January 2016. The specialist clinical advisors are from emergency medicine, mental health, orthopedics, dermatology, haematology and infectious diseases
CCAs consist of brief clinical summaries of high-quality evidence from Cochrane systematic reviews that makes information more accessible and helps inform decision making at the point of care. Each Cochrane Clinical Answer is presented with a clinical question, short answer and an opportunity to ‘drill down’ to the evidence from relevant Cochrane reviews. The evidence is displayed in a user-friendly format, mixing narrative, numbers and graphics. You can access Cochrane Clinical Answers here. Alternatively visit NTU library databases.
