The Cochrane Collaboration is an international non-profit and independent organisation, dedicated to making up-to-date, accurate information about the effects of healthcare readily available worldwide. It produces and disseminates systematic reviews of healthcare interventions and promotes the search for evidence in the form of clinical trials and other studies of interventions. The Cochrane Developmental, Psychosocial and Learning Problems Group (CDPLG) was originally established in Bristol order to bring Cochrane methodology to bear on a wide range of medical, social, educational and socio-legal research issues. The group is now based in Belfast.
