Centre for Reviews and Dissemination

The Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects (DARE) and the NHS Economic Evaluation Database (NHS EED) provide access to: Over 35,000 quality assessed systematic reviews of health and social care interventions; Summaries of all Cochrane systematic reviews and protocols up to March 2015; Over 17,000 economic evaluations of health and social care interventions. The HTA database will continue to be maintained for the foreseeable future at CRD and currently provides access to over 15,000 summaries of completed and ongoing health technology assessments.

DARE includes systematic reviews that evaluate the effects of health and social care interventions and the delivery and organisation of health and social care services. Also included are reviews of the wider determinants of health such as housing, and transport where these impact directly on health, or have the potential to impact on health and wellbeing.  NHS EED includes economic evaluations of health and social care interventions. Economic evaluations compare the costs and outcomes of two or more interventions using cost-benefit, cost-utility, or cost-effectiveness analyses.The HTA database includes completed and ongoing health technology assessments from around the world.  The HTA database is a valuable source for identifying grey literature as much of the information it contains is only available directly from individual funding agencies.
