The Cochrane Collaboration is an international non-profit and independent organisation, dedicated to making up-to-date, accurate information about the effects of healthcare readily available worldwide. It produces and disseminates systematic reviews of healthcare interventions and promotes the search for evidence in the form of clinical trials and other studies of interventions
The core functions of the Cochrane Nursing Care Field fall into three major areas related to the production and use of Cochrane reviews: 1) Supporting Cochrane Review Groups in the preparation of reviews relevant to nursing; 2) Introducing cross-cutting, non-specialised perspectives relevant to all those providing nursing care (nurses, other disciplines such as social work, families and lay caregivers); and 3) Enhancing the dissemination and effective uptake of Cochrane reviews.
JBI COnNECT+ (Clinical Online Network of Evidence for Care and Therapeutics) provides you with easy access to resources to help you find and use evidence to inform your clinical decision-making.
"The Joanna Briggs Institute is an international, not-for-profit, membership based research and development organisation within the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Adelaide.
