Cochrane Acute and Emergency Care supports the work of five Cochrane Review Groups focusing on research in the following areas:

The primary focus of Cochrane Review Groups is to provide reliable evidence required to make important decisions on health issues. Cochrane Review Groups facilitate the identification of reports of clinical trials and carry out systematic reviews of available evidence. These are published on the Cochrane Library, and updated periodically as new evidence is identified. This ensures that Cochrane Reviews are relevant, useful, usable, and used.
