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 practising healthcare professionals. The evidence is displayed in a user-friendly tabulated format that includes narratives, data, and links to graphics.
CCAs are available with a Cochrane subscription or national license. The following CCAs will be free until the 31 August:
- After pancreaticoduodenectomy, how does anastomosis between the pancreatic stump and jejunum compare with anastomosis between the stump and the stomach?
- In infants and children, do influenza vaccines help to prevent acute otitis media?
- How do external drains compare with no drains after burr‐hole evacuation for chronic subdural hematoma?
- What are the benefits and harms of hearing aids in adults with mild to moderate hearing loss?
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.
