CRD HTA Database news

The CRD HTA database includes completed and ongoing health technology assessments from around the world. It is a valuable source for identifying grey literature as much of the information it contains is only available directly from individual funding agencies. Database content is supplied by the 52 members of the International Network of Agencies for Health Technology Assessment (INAHTA) and by 20 other international HTA organisations. All new content is checked, proof read and published on the database by CRD. Any study designated as a health technology assessment by the contributing organisation is eligible for inclusion on the database. Bibliographic details and contact information are provided for published projects, and the authors’ conclusions are included for some projects. Links to reports, project pages and/ or organisation websites are provided wherever possible. The CRD HTA database also contains records of ongoing HTA projects and records are updated when projects are completed. This enables funders and researchers to identify work already in progress and may help reduce unintended duplication of effort.
