Cochrane-Wikipedia project

Cochrane has partnered with Wikipedia to improve the evidence-base of Wikipedia health articles

In 2014, Cochrane began a partnership with Wikipedia to improve the quality of the evidence-base in health-related articles. Many articles now quote from or cite Cochrane reviews. This not only improves the quality and reliability of the information available to Wikipedia readers, but also directs users to read full reviews in the Cochrane Library. 

The Wikipedia article on Pressure ulcers, for instance, cites several of our reviews, including:

Nutritional interventions for preventing and treating pressure ulcers

Repositioning for treating pressure ulcers

Wound cleansing for pressure ulcers
