Evidence-Based Medicine Reviews Multifile

The Evidence Based Medicine Reviews Multifile contains

  • the ACP Journal Club, which consists of two journals: the ACP Journal Club, a publication of the American College of Physicians, and Evidence-Based Medicine, a joint publication with the British Medical Journal Group
  • Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, which is a bibliographic database of definitive controlled trials. These controlled trials have been identified by the distinguished contributors to the Cochrane Collaboration. They (and others), as part of an international effort to search the world's health care journals (and other sources of information) systematically, have combined results to create an unbiased source of data for systematic reviews
  • Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, which includes the Cochrane Collaboration's  full-text of the regularly updated systematic reviews of the effects of healthcare.  The reviews are presented in two types: complete reviews, which are regularly updated by Cochrane Reviews and are prepared and maintained by Collaborative Review Groups; and protocols for reviews currently being prepared (all include an expected date of completion), which are the background, objectives, and methods of reviews in preparation
  • and the Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects (DARE), which is a full-text database containing critical assessments of systematic reviews from a variety of medical journals. DARE is produced by the expert reviewers and information staff of the National Health Services' Centre for Reviews and Dissemination (NHS CRD) at the University of York, England, and consists of structured abstracts of systematic reviews from all over the world. DARE records cover topics such as diagnosis, prevention, rehabilitation, screening, and treatment.
