Notes: Cochrane is a non-profit, non-governmental organization formed to organize medical research findings to facilitate evidence-based choices about health interventions faced by health professionals, patients, and policy makers. Cochrane includes 53 review groups that are based at research institutions worldwide. Cochrane has approximately 30,000 volunteer experts from around the world. The group conducts systematic reviews of health-care interventions and diagnostic tests and publishes them in the Cochrane Library.
Overall, the Cochrane library is a great pro-science resource that is partnered with the World Health Organization among other prominent medical organizations. (D. Van Zandt 3/14/2018)
