Readable, clinically-focused, actionable answers to inform point-of-care decision-making for health professionals.
Cochrane Clinical Answers (CCAs) provide a readable, digestible, clinically-focused entry point to rigorous research from Cochrane Reviews. They are designed to be actionable and to inform point-of-care decision-making. Each CCA contains a clinical question, a short answer, and data for the outcomes from the Cochrane Review deemed most relevant to practicing healthcare professionals. The evidence is displayed in a user-friendly tabulated format that includes narratives, data, and links to graphics.
COVID-19 CCAs are available for free. Latest COVID CCAs:
- What evidence is available on interventions to increase COVID‐19 vaccine uptake or decrease COVID‐19 vaccine hesitancy?
- What is the accuracy of rapid, point‐of‐care antigen tests for the diagnosis of SARS‐CoV‐2 infection?
- In invasively ventilated people with COVID‐19 and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), what are the effects of enabling early spontaneous breathing activity?
- For adults with mild or moderate to severe symptomatic COVID‐19, what are the effects of ivermectin?
Get involved: The clinical answer is written either by a practicing clinician or by a CCA Editor, with the answer being peer-reviewed by a practicing clinician. If you would like to join the Clinical Answers authoring team, please contact the team at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are specifically looking for clinicians in the following areas: respiratory medicine; care of the elderly; cardiovascular medicine; pregnancy and childbirth; neurology - especially epilepsy; infectious disease; paediatrics; rheumatology; ENT; and urology.
