The Cochrane library provides updated reviews with the highest quality on issues of health care. When I encounter clinical issues that I am unsure on, I always search the Cochrane Library first. The Cochrane Library is my favorite electronic resource to get evidence to help my clinical decision. It not only guarantees the quality of clinical care for patients but also saves my time in searching and judging the evidence. As a clinician, I enjoy the trustworthiness and convenience of the Cochrane Library.

For clinicians, the Cochrane library enhances the quality of health care and also saves time for clinicians. It diminishes the gap between busy clinicians and quality health care. Clinicians can spend more time on other areas of health care including negotiation, education and communication. For clinical teachers, the Cochrane Library provides a resource to help teachers guide students in learning and using evidence-based health care.
