Cochrane Denmark is a research centre that is closely affiliated with Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine Odense and hosted at the University of Southern Denmark. We also host the Cochrane Bias Methods group.
At Cochrane Denmark, we aim to support the efforts of synthesizing and providing the best available evidence for health professionals, researchers, health decision-makers, media and the public. We help enable the use and visibility of Cochrane systematic reviews primarily in Denmark and across the Nordic and Eastern European region. We assist healthcare professionals and researchers in producing systematic Cochrane reviews, but also through producing evidence in relation to scientific methodology and other factors that influence medical research, such as conflicts of interests. As part of Cochrane, we do not accept commercial or conflicted funding. This is vital for us to generate authoritative and reliable information, working freely and unconstrained by commercial and financial interests.
Systematic Cochrane reviews are published in the Cochrane Library, which is a collection of databases that contain different types of high-quality, independent evidence to inform healthcare decision-making. The Library is freely available to everyone in Denmark, including patients and decisions makers, due to a national licence funded by the Danish state.
Denmark is home to over 400 Cochrane authors, 25 editors and 5 Review- and Methods groups who produce systematic reviews of primary research in human health care and policy. In 2020, The Cochrane Library was accessed over 93,000 times by people based in Denmark.
