Combines seven of the most trusted evidence based medicine (EBM) resources into a single, fully-searchable database.

ACP Journal Club - American College of Physicians
Provides you with two leading journals: ACP Journal Club, a publication of the American College of Physicians, and Evidence-Based Medicine, a joint publication with the British Medical Journal Publishing Group.

Cochrane Clinical Answers (CCA) - Cochrane Collection
These provide a readable, digestible, clinically focused entry point to rigorous research from Cochrane systematic reviews. They are designed to be actionable and to inform decision making at the point of care.

Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews - Cochrane Collaboration
Fast, bottom-line answers to the most commonly-asked clinical questions, based on comprehensive and expert analysis of the medical literature. Includes the full text of Cochrane's regularly updated systematic reviews of the effects of health care. There are two types of reviews:

  • Cochrane Methodology Reviews: full-text systematic reviews of methodological studies. The reviews are both highly structured and systematic.
  • Protocols: provide place-markers for reviews, which are currently being written. They summarize the background and the rationale of the review.

Cochrane Methodology Register (CMR) - Cochrane Collaboration
A bibliography of more than 9,000 references to controlled trials in journal articles, book chapters, conference proceedings and reports, and other publications of methodologies used in health studies.

The Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effectiveness (DARE) - NHS Centre for Reviews and Dissemination (CRD)
Selected systematic reviews on the effectiveness of clinical interventions and policies from databases such as MEDLINE and through manual review of the primary literature. These high-quality reviews are based on evaluation of literature searching, inclusion criteria, study assessment, and synthesis.

Definitive Controlled Trials
The Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials - Cochrane Collaboration
The largest register of its kind, this database contains over 580,000 bibliographic references to definite randomized controlled trials or controlled clinical trials. It also contains relevant records from MEDLINE, EMBASE, and other bibliographic databases, as well as information on unpublished trials.

Health Technology Assessments (HTA) - NHS Centre for Reviews and Dissemination (CRD)
In collaboration with Sweden’s International Network of Agencies of Health Technology Assessment, HTA brings together details on ongoing studies of the medical, social, ethical and economic implications of healthcare interventions. It contains 4,000 records of completed and ongoing assessments from members of INAHTA.

NHS Economic Evaluation Database (NHSEED) - NHS Centre for Reviews and Dissemination (CRD)
(please note that, though the NHS is no longer updating the content in this database, the archive of the data continues to be accessible on the Ovid platform)
Selected systematic reviews on the effectiveness of clinical interventions and policies from databases such as MEDLINE and through manual review of the primary literature. These high-quality reviews are based on evaluation of literature searching, inclusion criteria, study assessment, and synthesis.
