Understanding the Cochrane Library
September 11, 2006, 2:00 PM CDT
About the Webcast
The NCDDR is charged with assisting NIDRR-funded researchers to improve the quality of their design and outcomes so that more NIDRR-funded research makes its way into the larger body of research evidence as identified through systematic reviews. To achieve this aim the NCDDR is providing a new service for NIDRR-funded researchers: online access to The Cochrane Library, free-of-charge. Denine Tilery of Wiley InterScience will describe:
- The aim, goals and structure of The Cochrane Collaboration.
- Why systematic reviews are an increasingly important source of evidence of the effects of healthcare.
- The Cochrane Library Databases - what they contain; searching the databases by topic, subject, other.
- How to use the 'My Profile' feature to save your MeSH and Advanced searches.
