The CDSR is database of reviews which identify an intervention for a specific disease or other problem in health care, and determine whether this intervention works. To do this, authors locate, appraise and synthesize evidence from as many relevant scientific studies as possible. They summarize conclusions about effectiveness, and provide a unique collation of the known evidence on a given topic, so that others can easily review the primary studies for any intervention. The CDSR is one of six Cochrane Collection databases.
