New Database Added: Canadian Cochrane Centre [Cochrane Library]

The Canadian Cochrane Centre, part of the Cochrane Library, has been added to our list of library resources. This database contains a large collection of evidence-based medical treatments and tells you "which health treatments work, which ones don’t, and which may cause harm."

When you search the Canadian Cochrane Centre, five other databases are automatically included in your search of the library, which include: The Cochrane Database of Systematic and Methodology Reviews, The Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects, The Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), The Cochrane Methodology Register, The NHS Economic Evaluation Database, and The Health Technology Assessment Database.

This database is currently a Canada-wide trial that began on April 15, 2009 and will expire in 9 months.

All resources can be accessed from on campus or at home. For a complete list of all of our database resources, click here.
