The NHS Centre for
Reviews and Dissemination (CRD) aims to
identify and review the
results of good quality health research and to disseminate the findings
to key decision makers in the NHS and to consumers of health care services.
The reviews cover the effectiveness of care for particular conditions,
the effectiveness of health technologies and evidence on efficient methods
of organising and delivering particular types of health care. The NHS Centre
for Reviews and Dissemination is funded by the NHS Executive and the Health
Departments of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The Cochrane Collaboration
facilitates the creation, review,
maintenance and dissemination
of systematic overviews of the effects of health care. The Cochrane
Informatics Group develops and evaluates strategies for enabling
the work of the Collaboration. The Canadian Cochrane Centre
receives funding from the Conference of Deputy Ministers of
Health of Canada and the Medical Research Council of Canada, as well
as staff and equipment support from the Health Information Unit of the
Department of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics at McMaster University.
The Health Information Research
Unit at McMaster University
studies the phenomenology
of health information, develops information tools to support evidence-based
medicine and evaluates informational health interventions.
