Cochrane Collaboration Disclaimer about external links
Views expressed on the websites and resources listed on this page are not necessarily shared by the Cochrane Collaboration. The "quality" of information presented online by these websites can vary, and is in no way endorsed or recommended by the Cochrane Collaboration. This page is intended simply as a starting point for readers to do their own searching and reading about the topic of Evidence-Based Medicine.
While "evidence" can be essential in evaluating effectiveness of healthcare interventions, well-informed decisions also require information, and judgments about needs, resources and values; as well as judgments about the quality and applicability of evidence. Relying only on evidence about the effects of health care alone can be inappropriate. Care and compassion are vital, and understanding the nature and basis of disease and the way that interventions work remains important. The Cochrane Collaboration is not responsible for the results of decisions based on information found in sources listed on this page.
