KSR Pain Evidence is a newly developed information resource that provides easy access to summaries and critical appraisals of all systematic reviews and meta-analyses published on the topic of pain since 2010.
The appraisals provide a quick “bottom line” conclusion with the key clinically relevant implications of the results reported in the article and includes information about the reliability of these results. In total more than 2,500 systematic reviews have been critically appraised, from 2010 to date. We also include all randomized trials (RCTs) from PubMed. From Spring 2016 assessments (using AGREE II) of Clinical Practice Guidelines will be added to the database.
The KSR Pain Evidence database is highly useful for corporate researchers, busy clinicians, health care professionals, and decision makers who have neither the expertise nor time to do a detailed risk of bias assessment themselves. The database has been developed with the aim of helping users to make sense of the ever increasing volume and complexity of evidence.
