Description At A Glance

Considered to be most comprehensive and easy-to-use source of continuously updated evidence-based medical information. Use the high quality, reliable and trusted information to make decisions based on evidence for and against the effectiveness and appropriateness of treatments.

High quality, reliable, evidence-based information for healthcare professionals.

The Cochrane Reviews enables all those involved with healthcare decisions to keep up to date with all the latest evidence in their field of interest – a challenge which becomes harder each year as the volume of evidence increases.

The Cochrane Reviews solves this problem and is the best single source of reliable evidence about the effects of health care.

Cochrane reviews are based on the best available information about healthcare interventions. They explore the evidence for and against the effectiveness and appropriateness of treatments (medications, surgery, education, etc) in specific circumstances.

Those who prepare the reviews are mostly health care professionals who volunteer to work in one of the many Collaborative Review Groups, with editorial teams overseeing the preparation and maintenance of the reviews, as well as application of the rigorous quality standards for which Cochrane Reviews have become known.

  • Cochrane reviews have become known internationally as sources of high quality, reliable health information.
  • A structured format helps the reader to find his/her way around the review easily.
  • Multinational editorial teams try to ensure that a review is applicable in different parts of the world.
  • The Cochrane Reviews is published four times a year.

Your Voice

By ER Physician
I have been a fan of many of Skyscape's medical software databases for almost 8 years, using them since the turn of this Century initially on Widescreen Hewlett-Packard PDAs and then subsequently PocketPCs (PPC). Since moving to the Intel Mac, I have secretly hoped that Medical developers would adopt the Mac/iPhone/iTouch platform, not just the Palm/PPC/BB platform. Skyscape's pre-eminent feature is it's SmartLink capability that integrates all their databases of books, akin to hyper-links in Wikipedia. At present, I have access to all these books in their current editions and many others as a paid benefit of my Provincial Medical Association dues online behind a secure Internet connection. Despite this, it is always useful to have a portable device-resident database at Point of Care independent of a live Internet connection. Two thumbs up for this Developer (Skyscape) with a well-established track record - they WILL revolutionize the ubiquity of the iPhone/iTouch utilization in Medical care. The Software is already very polished - I hope the developers will allow a selection of customizable newsfeeds by medical discipline.
