In this sections we’ll discuss some of the best databases and reference sources for health care professionals. Some of the resources listed may be very clinical in nature.

  • The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews – provides accurate, up-to-date information about healthcare and best practices for clinicians. The database contains reviews of medical interventions and clinical studies and provides commentary and analysis about how research is done and the effectiveness of healthcare interventions. Because not all medical studies are created equally, the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews helps analyze the clinical significance of other studies and summarizes research into a format that clinicians can utilize when conducting a medical search.
