Sign up to attend the upcoming Cochrane Library webinars so that you too can make the most of the systematic, up-to-date reviews and other resources it has to offer.

La Biblioteca Cochrane is a Wiley group health sciences collection run by the international non-profit organization Cochrane. With a view to aiding healthcare professionals in making well-informed clinical and health decisions, the organization publishes systematic, up-to-date reviews on its platform.

Thanks to a subscription paid for by Spain's Ministry of Health, Social Policy and Equality, you can view all the English-language content available, Spanish translations of the comprehensive reviews, and any of the collections on specific healthcare-related topics.

Every Cochrane review addresses one question, for example "Can antibiotics alleviate the symptoms of a sore throat?" To find the answer, a team of experts scours the existing research and separates out all the primary studies on the topic. Then, they assess the studies to determine whether they provide evidence that backs a specific treatment.

The Wiley group has prepared a series of one-hour webinars to assist university library users in making the most of Cochrane Library.
