There are so many healthcare treatments and interventions available today, how do you separate those that are effective from those that aren’t and identify treatments that may be harmful?

The Cochrane Library can help answer these questions. The Cochrane Reviews are systematic assessments of the effectiveness of different health care treatments and interventions that are intended to help people to make informed decisions about health care.
