Cochrane does not make clinical recommendations, instead it provides unbiased and high-quality health evidence so that health decisions, policies, and clinical guidelines can be informed by the best available evidence. ‘Cochrane Evidence in Practice’ series collects stories about clinical professionals using Cochrane evidence - the everyday healthcare professional making sure their patients and clients are getting the best care!

"I’m trained as a PA (physician assistant) and have a Master of Public Health with a focus on Health Education and Behavorial Science. As a healthcare provider, I rely on resources like Cochrane Reviews to stay up-to-date on current research. This allows me to provide my patients with evidence-based information so that they can feel empowered to make the best decisions for themselves and their families. The plain language summaries are a great educational tool to provide to patients at the end of our visits to reiterate the information we’ve discussed in a language that they can understand.”
