Cochrane Nursing Care Network

The Cochrane Collaboration is an international non-profit, independent organisation dedicated to making up-to-date, accurate information about the effects of healthcare readily available worldwide. It produces and disseminates systematic reviews of healthcare interventions and promotes the search for evidence. Free access in the Caribbean is provided through the Virtual Health Library [PAHO ~ BIREME].
"The Cochrane Nursing Care Network is one of 16 Fields and Networks within the Cochrane Collaboration. The purpose of a Field or Network is to support the conduct, dissemination and utilization of the systematic reviews relevant to the field."
The core functions of this newly formed Cochrane Nursing Care Network:
(1) support Cochrane Review Groups in the preparation of reviews relevant to nursing.
(2) introduce cross-cutting, non-specialised perspectives relevant to all those providing nursing care (nurses and others).
(3) improve health outcomes through increasing the use of the Cochrane Library by nurses and others, engaging them with the Cochrane Collaboration, and supporting its role in providing an evidence base for nursing care.
