Abstract

The main work of the Cochrane Collaboration is to conduct systematic reviews of the best available evidence for specific research questions. The information gathered allows clinicians and policy makers to identify the most effective and efficient treatments and allows investigators and funding bodies to refine plans for new research and avoid duplication.
