Cochrane Reviews Identified and Summarised for Policy (CRISP) provided summaries of Cochrane reviews relevant to health policy. Our aim was to provide policy-makers with reliable and relevant research in an accessible format, to support use of research in health policy decision-making.
At the time, CRISP was a collaboration between Cochrane Australia and the Australian Government through the National Health and Medical Research Council. The collaboration aimed 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 included:
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 groups.
NOTE: this project ended in 2015; the summaries are archived through the website.
