The Health of Older People Project:
Current evidence from Cochrane Systematic Reviews, relating to the health care of older people, is now available thanks to the work of a group of researchers in Glasgow. The searchable database provides a concise account of the evidence on common health problems (e.g. continence, falls) and different models of service organization (e.g. acute care, long-term) related to older people.
Although Cochrane is mostly known for its high-quality systematic reviews, part of Cochrane’s mandate is to search for evidence in the form of clinical trials and other studies of interventions. The searchable Child Health Field’s Trial Register from Cochrane is the most comprehensive database of published, pediatric clinical trials available.
