|DARE (Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects)
The Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects (DARE) is a part of the collection of evidence-based medical databases in the Cochrane Library. Systematic reviews regarding health and social care interventions are distilled into structured and value-added evidence-based abstracts with included critical appraisal for bottom-line clinical answers.
DARE, produced by the Centre for Reviews and Dissemination, provides high quality systematic reviews that have not been carried out by The Cochrane Collaboration; as such, it serves as an important counterpart to Cochrane's Database of Systematic Reviews.
Note: DARE is a part of OVID's EBM Reviews Collection.
