Cochrane Collaboration

Lancaster Health Hub is committed to using the principles of evidence-based practice to support skill and capability development across the network. A substantial proportion of this has been achieved to date in the Hub to develop Cochrane systematic reviews of interventions. The following reviews are a sample of work published on the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (Impact Factor 6.1):
