Keep up to date with the latest Cochrane evidence by following our sister blog, Evidently Cochrane. Evidently Cochrane posts weekly blogs, which usually feature new or updated Cochrane reviews on a health topic. It is for everyone interested in finding and using the best quality evidence to inform decisions about health.
