Evidently Cochrane Blog

Evidently Cochrane aims to make Cochrane evidence really accessible, and to encourage discussion about it, through blogs which usually feature new or updated Cochrane reviews on a health topic. It is for everyone who is interested in finding and using the best quality evidence to inform decisions about health. Many of the blogs are written for people making choices about their own health or supporting friends and family in doing so. The blogs give accessible summaries of reliable evidence, giving an explanation for medical and research terms when needed. We think that the blogs written for a non-medical audience will be of interest to healthcare professionals too, as Cochrane evidence on interventions is important for both.

Here we have collated all Evidently Cochrane blogposts related to topics on gynaecology, fertility, and women’s health that feature new or updated Cochrane Gynaecology and Fertility reviews.
