In February 2022 the Cochrane Governing Board approved a new model for producing Cochrane Evidence Syntheses, following an extensive community consultation process. The new model is designed to ensure Cochrane remains viable, sustainable, and focused on the greatest global health and care challenges now and into the future.
We understand that people have specific questions and we’ll answer as many of these as we can, as soon as we can. We also know that organizational transformation on this scale can only happen in stages and that means that we can’t provide answers to all questions immediately. We know there is much uncertainty about how the changes will affect individuals, Cochrane groups, and our collective culture. To help alleviate the concerns that arise during a long transition period we are committed to sharing information as the programme evolves. We will continue to post all details of change-related news and events here - this is your landing page for all information on the future of evidence synthesis in Cochrane.
You can find out more by:
- Access detailed information about the new model.
- Join then Future Cochrane webinar series and watch past recordings. It features a series of presenters sharing all the latest on implementation, innovation, and community engagement. Each session will be available to view online afterward and you can submit your questions beforehand.
- Submit your questions and ideas
- Read the FAQs. Explore answers to common questions or submit your own.
This is just the beginning of a profound change for our organization and there is much work to be done. While some answers make take longer to find than others to, we ask you to contribute your questions, concerns, and ideas along the way. The decisions we collectively make now can build on our legacy and foster new opportunities for people to work together to address the most pressing of global issues.
