The Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects (DARE)

By University of York Centre for Reviews and Dissemination

Abstract

Systematic reviews are useful tools for busy decision-makers because they identify, appraise and synthesise the available research evidence on a particular topic. Many thousands of systematic reviews relevant to health care have been published. However, they can be difficult to locate and their quality is variable. DARE (the Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects) contains summaries of systematic reviews which have met strict quality criteria. Each summary also provides a critical commentary on the quality of the review. DARE covers a broad range of health care related topics and can be used for answering questions about the effects of health care interventions, as well as for developing clinical guidelines and policy making. DARE is available free of charge on the internet (http://nhscrd.york.ac.uk), and as part of the Cochrane Library. Alternatively, DARE can be searched, on your behalf, by CRD information staff (tel: 01904 433707 or email nhscrd-info@york.ac.uk)
