As part of our work at Cochrane UK, we monitor the impact of Cochrane outputs.

One way in which we monitor the impact of Cochrane Reviews in healthcare decision-making is to identify whether they have been used to inform evidence-based clinical guidelines.

We continually check guideline developers’ websites to capture newly published guidelines. This enables us to maintain the currency of the Cochrane UK guidelines data set of Cochrane reviews that have informed healthcare guidance worldwide. Our data include a subset on UK-published guidance.
