Have you heard of The Cochran Collaboration? Well worth visiting!

 

Its vision: that health-care decision-making be based on high quality and timely research evidence.

Its ethics: it does not accept commercial or conflicted funding.

“The Cochrane Collaboration is an international network of more than 31,000 dedicated people from over 120 countries. We work together to help healthcare practitioners, policy-makers, patients, their advocates and [caretakers], make well-informed decisions about health care, by preparing, updating, and promoting the accessibility of Cochrane Reviews – over 5,000 so far, published online in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, part of The Cochrane Library. We also prepare the largest collection of records of randomised controlled trials in the world, called CENTRAL, published as part of The Cochrane Library.”
