Abstract

Systematic reviews are a key component of evidence-based practice. A valuable and accessible source of good quality systematic reviews on topics in musculoskeletal trauma and disorders is the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, published in The Cochrane Library. These reviews are produced by members of The Cochrane Collaboration, an international not-for-profit organization that aims to make up-to-date, accurate information about the effects of healthcare readily available worldwide. Contributions from orthopedic specialists in India and neighboring countries are required to make the Cochrane Database an even more useful and comprehensive resource of reliable evidence. Linked with this is the opportunity for orthopedic specialists to take a leading role in generating the evidence to inform their practice.
