Web site of the month: Cochrane Clinical Answers

NHS staff now have access to a new resource, Cochrane Clinical Answers. Covering 32 different clinical specialities, it provides short, readable, clinically focused access to the high quality research from the Cochrane Library. Each question is designed to be clinically relevant, aiming to inform decision making at the point of care.

Each clinical answer contains a clinical question, a short answer and the ability to look deeper into the evidence from Cochrane reviews, displayed in a user friendly format. You can browse all the answers by broad topic areas, or search for more specific information.

Cochrane Clinical Answers is aimed at healthcare professionals and is a very useful resource for obtaining short, actionable evidence that can be used in clinical practice.
