New national licence agreement offers Switzerland full access to Cochrane evidence

12.01.2016 - New national licence agreement offers Switzerland unlimited access to the Cochrane Library - the leading resource in evidence-based health care. Swiss patients and healthcare practitioners will now have access to more than 6500 published systematic reviews in healthcare interventions through one-click access to the Cochrane Library.

It is a leading resource in evidence-based research across areas including pregnancy, mental health, surgical procedures, and public health. Cochrane Reviews provide independent high-quality evidence to aid healthcare decision making.

Cochrane is a global independent network of researchers, professionals, patients, carers, and people interested in health. The organization gathers and summarizes the best evidence from research to help make informed choices about treatment. Cochrane contributors - 37,000 from more than 130 countries - work together to produce credible, accessible health information that is free from commercial sponsorship and other conflicts of interest. Many contributors are leaders in their fields - medicine, health policy, research methodology, or consumer advocacy. The team of Cochrane Switzerland, based at Lausanne and Berne, is active in all language regions of Switzerland.
