What is the Cochrane Collaboration?

It is an international, non-profit organization made up of thousands of volunteer researchers, health professionals, and patients in over fifty countries. Cochrane produces and disseminates systematic reviews on the effectiveness of health care interventions. These reviews summarize the available clinical evidence and provide an easy-to-understand "implications for practice" section.
