Cochrane Nursing Care Network

Aims and Scope

The Mission of the Cochrane Nursing Care Field (CNCF) is to improve health outcomes through increasing the use of the Cochrane Library and supporting Cochrane’s role by providing an evidence base for nurses and related healthcare professionals involved in delivering, leading or researching nursing care. The CNCF produces summaries of recent nursing-care-relevant Cochrane Reviews that are regularly published in collaborating nursing-care-related journals. Information on the processes this Field has developed can be accessed at:

The Cochrane Nursing Care Network Section aims to make Cochrane Reviews accessible to those who deliver, lead or research nursing care to bring about practice change. The Section will inform clinical decision-making and policy development with the highest quality research evidence available in the areas of acute care, care of the aged, primary care, community care, midwifery and practical aspects of evidence related to the delivery of nursing care through advanced practice roles.
