Our evidence

The primary aim of our Field is to create a coordinated link between primary research, evidence synthesis, policymaking and practice regarding issues related to medical excess and sustainability of healthcare. Our strategy is aligned with the Cochrane 2020 strategy and its first goal on producing evidence:

Cochrane Sustainable Healthcare's goal 1: producing evidence

  • To develop fundamental reforms to evidence production and synthesis methods, so that research on medical diagnoses and interventions addresses potential harms as well as benefits.
  • To push for a broad consideration of resource use at all steps in the evidence chain in order to promote a more sensible prioritization of financial and human resources for societies and to take the treatment burden for individual patients adequately into account.
