Cochrane Update Project
(The Cochrane-Wikipedia “bot”)

updated: The 1st of each month

This is a bot created list of Cochrane reviews we are using for which a newer version is available. It marks the articles with the {{Update inline}} template.


  1. Open the relevant article in a new tab and find the related reference
  2. Open the new review in a new tab
  3. Check to see if the conclusions have changed since the previous version of the review
  4. Update reference and update text as needed
  5. Add {{done}} to put a check mark before the update you performed on this page

Instructions for new editors can be found here: Wikipedia:WikiProject_Medicine/Evidence_based_content_for_medical_articles_on_Wikipedia/Cochrane_Update_Instructions

Entries marked with {{done}} are automatically archived to /Archive 1 at the start of each month.

If we wish to use the old review in an article (e.g.: in the historical context), the reference can be marked with <!-- No update needed: PMID -->, where PMID is the Pubmed ID for the reference, and the bot will ignore it.
