This blog is a review of a resource. In this case, ‘Teach Yourself Cochrane’, a resource produced by Cochrane Training. If you’re a student and would like to share your thoughts about different resources and learning tools, you can find more information here.
Teach Yourself Cochrane tells the story behind Cochrane and the challenges the organisation faces in finding good quality evidence to produce systematic reviews. You will learn how you can find information about clinical trials and read Cochrane reviews, and also ways to get involved as a Consumer.

It gives a good, clear description of Cochrane. However, on the Testing Treatments website, this resource is listed under key concept 2.12 ‘relative measures of effects can be misleading’ and I do not feel as though this resource is particularly relevant to this concept and does not particularly explain this concept.
It doesn’t help understanding of the relative measures of effects (key concept 2.12) that much but does outline Cochrane’s work and how to prevent misleading information through systematic reviews.
The resource itself is good but not too relevant to this section and is quite long.
4 – it’s a good resource but doesn’t particularly address this section.
