Abstract

The Cochrane Library is a tool for physicians and other health care practitioners seeking evidence to inform their decisions. The systematic reviews provide a high-quality synthesis of the current literature, saving time for busy people. To make the library more user-friendly, the collaboration plans to produce a consumer summary for each topic in the Database of Systematic Reviews and a cancer library aimed at the general public. In contrast to some of the questionable health-related resources on the Web, the Cochrane Library is an authoritative reference that can help physicians with everyday treatment decisions. The collaboration's commitment to keeping its resources up to date through vigorous support of reviewers should ensure that it remains a valuable Internet tool for physicians.
