Laying down guidelines for Autologous plateletsconcentrate treatment in Periodontics-a reviewChennai:“Cochrane” refers to a global independent network of researchers, professionals, patients, and people interested in health. Cochrane contributors, from more than 120 countries, work together to produce credible, accessible health information that is free from commercial sponsorship and other conflicts of interest. The work published in Cochrane is recognized as representing an international gold standard for high quality, trusted information. Moreover, the Cochrane stands out with its published systematic reviews with an esteemed impact factor of 5.940.
The Cochrane contributors are involved in gathering and summarizing the best evidence from research to help its audience and make informed choices about treatment. The mission of Cochrane is to provide accessible, credible information to support informed decision-making for improving global health. Cochrane evidence provides a powerful tool to enhance the healthcare knowledge and decision making.
As access to health evidence increases, so do the risks of misinterpreting complex content; meanwhile the likelihood of any one person getting a complete and balanced picture decreases. The mission of Cochrane is to provide this complex information in the form of high quality systematic reviews which are updated in a timely basis by the contributors, to support informed decision-making and evidence based interventions which would result in improved global health.
Cochrane's contributors are affiliated to the organization through Cochrane groups: healthcare subject-related review groups, thematic networks, groups concerned with the methodology of systematic reviews, and regional centres. One of such group held in INDIA is Cochrane Oral Health Group. We feel proud to be the part of this group with our contribution towards the same.
