Accessing Best Evidence

cochrane_logo

To mark the United Nations International Day of Older Persons, Cochrane, probably the world’s best-known source of best evidence for medicine who  works collaboratively with contributors around the world to produce authoritative, relevant, and reliable evidence, in the form of Cochrane Reviews, launched a new resource called Cochrane Global Ageing a collaborative venture who will work in partnership with complementary initiatives both within and external to Cochrane to provide a new gateway to optimising the health and wellbeing of ageing populations everywhere. To find out more about this resource and to access their evidence go to

http://globalageing.cochrane.org/

It’s bound to be very useful as their resource base grows.

It might also be a good time to introduce you to something else on the Cochrane site called Special Collections. These collections bring together selected Cochrane Reviews and other external sources to provide a useful evidence overview on important healthcare topics. So far there are Special collections on Preventing Falls, Physical Activity and Exercise for Older People and Care Homes amongst other things. Worth a look maybe ?
