Future Cochrane webinar series - registration and recordings

Global connections

Earlier this year, Cochrane's Governing Board approved the proposed change to Cochrane’s evidence synthesis production model and implementation is now under way. We know this profound shift leads to all kinds of questions, concerns, and new ideas right across the Cochrane community.

Throughout this transition period we will continue the community engagement process that has helped to shape the new model. Our key focus in 2022 is to work on delivering more detailed plans about the model, share this information, and address the questions you have.

A new webinar series will explore the individual projects that make up the Future of Evidence Synthesis change programme. Project-focused sessions will alternate with sessions based on questions from specific Cochrane groups - including Geographic Groups, Fields, Review Groups, Methods Groups and Consumers.

You can:
