Abstracts of Cochrane Reviews

The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews consists of a rapidly growing collection of regularly updated systematic reviews of the effects of health care. They are prepared from analyses of randomised controlled trials. Evidence is included or excluded on the basis of explicit quality criteria to minimise bias. Data are often combined into a meta-analysis to increase the power of numerous small studies, each to small to produce a reliable result.

National Confidential Enquiry into Perioperative Deaths

The National Confidential Enquiry into Perioperative Deaths (NCEPOD) is a registered charity whose aim is to review clinical practice and identify potentially remediable factors in the practice of anaesthesia, surgery and other invasive medical procedures. The aim is to look at the quality of the delivery of care and not specifically the causation of death. This site contains the 1996/97 and 1999 reports in PDF format. The reports are also summarised and the key recommendations included. The 1999 reports specifically looks at surgery at the extremes of age - both children and the elderly.


Basic Electronic Surgical Training (BeST) is an online program providing fully-integrated training at basic surgical level.  Based on the intercollegiate syllabus of the four Royal Colleges of Surgeons, it contains 18 modules, 93 tutorials and the back to Basics guides to anatomy, physiology, pathology, investigations and surgical techniques.
