Cochrane Reviews Identified and Summarised for Policy (CRISP)

Green banner with white circles

Cochrane Reviews Identified and Summarised for Policy (CRISP) provides summaries of Cochrane Reviews that are relevant to health policy. Our aim is to provide policy-makers with reliable and relevant research in an accessible format, to support use of research in health policy decision-making.

CRISP is part of an ongoing collaboration between Cochrane Australia and the Australian Government through the National Health and Medical Research Council. The collaboration aims to encourage and support evidence-based approaches to policy making by addressing barriers to the use of research evidence, particularly Cochrane reviews, in policy-making.
Project outputs include:
Web-based summaries of policy-relevant Cochrane reviews including reviews published by the Cochrane Effective Practice and Organisation of Care, Cochrane Consumers and Communication, and Cochrane Public Health review groups.
