Systematic reviews help nurses to manage the overwhelming volume of available information by synthesizing valid data from primary studies and summarizing the results of interventions. One reliable source of systematic reviews of healthcare interventions is the Cochrane Library.This paper briefly describes the Cochrane Collaboration and the Cochrane Library. It also encourages nurse clinicians and nurse administrators to use the Cochrane Library and encourages nurse researchers to contribute to the Cochrane Library by conducting systematic reviews in the field of nursing care effectiveness.

En présentant une synthèse des principales études portant sur les soins infirmiers et en résumant les résultats des interventions, les recensions systématiques offrent aux infirmières un moyen de gérer la quantité impressionnante d'information disponible. La Cochrane Library compte parmi les sources fiables de données en cette matière; son fonctionnement, de même que celle de la Cochrane Collaboration, sont brièvement présentés. Les auteurs encouragent les infirmières cliniciennes et administratrices à consulter la base de données et incitent les chercheuses à y contribuer en menant des recensions systématiques dans le domaine de l'efficacité des soins infirmiers.
