AbstractThirty years ago, and a quarter of a century after randomised trials had become widely accepted, Archie Cochrane reproached the medical profession for not having managed to organise a ‘‘critical summary, by speciality or subspeciality, adapted periodically, of all relevant randomised controlled trials’’. Thirty years after Cochrane’s reproach we feel it is timely to consider the extent to which health professionals, the public and policymakers could now use ‘‘critical summaries’’ of trials for their decision-making.
