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.
You can pick and choose which topics are of interest to you and build your own personal library of review topics that seamlessly work with your other Skyscape references. Purchase the first Cochrane review topic for only $29.95, and save 15% when you purchase two or 20% when you purchase any three or more topics.


Your Voice

By Chris Helopoulos, MS, PA-C
At last, I've found a Palm product, which medical students (or any student of medicine, for that matter) will actually USE!
Don't get me wrong. There are many incredible e-book references out there, especially for Palm OS handheld computers (including Palm, HandSpring, Sony, and HandEra brand handhelds). This one just seems the handiest and the most useful application yet.

So, why the Washington University Internship Survival Guide (hereafter, WUINSurv)? I love it for its punchy, bulleted style. It doesn't try to be a library. It hits the high points, the real keys to student survival. It also includes sufficient detail and information to make intelligent decisions. Finally, it's easily navigable. What good is the best information if you can't find it?

The key to the navigation of WUINSurv is the now legendary Skyscape software platform. A few minutes spent learning the remarkable features of Skyscape will reward the user with speedy and intuitive navigation. Skyscape powers many mobile references for the Palm OS, so you'll master more than WU INSurv all at the same time. What's more, install more than one Skyscape product to your handheld computer and they automatically cross-link and cross-reference when applicable. This could be invaluable, for example, when you want more extensive or in-depth drug information and your WU INSurv links to one of the Skyscape drug guides.

I've reviewed the Skyscape features before, but for those of you who may not be familiar, we'll look at these features as we explore WU INSurv. There are three major ways to navigate the text: you can surf 1) Main Index 2) Medication Index or 3) Table of Contents. Also, it's important to note that all three of these choices also feature the convenient ""Look for______"" at the bottom of the page for the instant gratification that only a ""find"" feature can provide.

Common to all three navigation modes are Skyscape's patented SmARTbuttons at the top right of each page.
