Detailed guides to painful problems, treatments & more

The Cochrane Collaboration

page updated


The Cochrane Collaboration publishes comprehensive reviews of what the science can tell us so far about medical treatments, and they promote and facilitate evidence-based medicine. Although not perfect — in recent years their quality control has slipped a little, in my opinion — they still generally produce the most authoritative reviews available of pain and injury science.

Now, if only they weren’t so infamous for never drawing any conclusion other than “more research is needed.”
