Scope

Cochrane Long-term Conditions and Ageing supports the work of the Cochrane Review Groups focusing on research in the following areas:

  •    HepatoBiliary
  •    IBD
  •    Kidney and Transplant
  •    Metabolic and Endocrine Disorders
  •    Upper GI and Pancreatic Diseases

The primary focus of Cochrane Review Groups is to provide reliable evidence required to make important decisions on issues concerning conditions relevant to these topics. Cochrane Review Groups facilitate the identification of reports of clinical trials and carry out systematic reviews of available evidence. These are published on the Cochrane Library, and updated periodically as new evidence is identified. This ensures that Cochrane Reviews are relevant, useful, usable, and used.
