Cochrane launches Evidence Essentials

Cochrane has launched Evidence Essentials, a free online resource for anyone interested in evidence-based medicine and systematic reviews. Cochrane Evidence Essentials is written from the perspective of a healthcare consumer and was co-created with patients and carers. Follow 'Eleni', as she looks for reliable evidence to help her make informed choices about healthcare. Evidence Essentials covers four topics:

  • Evidence-based medicine 
  • Clinical trials 
  • Systematic reviews
  • How to find, understand and use Cochrane Evidence

 With contributions from subject experts, quizzes, short films, audio, interviews, sound files, and interactivity, this is an accessible way to learn about evidence and how to use it.
