Professor Archibald Leman Cochrane (1909-1988) was a British medical researcher whose book Effectiveness and Efficiency: Random Reflections on Health Services (1972) and subsequent advocacy caused increasing acceptance of the evidence-based medicine concept. Cochrane's work was honoured through the naming of centres of evidence-based medical research - Cochrane Centres[?] - and an international organisation - The Cochrane Collaboration.
