Each month, you are invited to join a 60 minute interactive webinar hosted by Cochrane’s Editor in Chief, Karla Soares-Weiser. This is an opportunity to hear more about Cochrane’s Editorial and Methods Department’s (EMD) strategic plans and their implementation by senior editorial staff, as well as the work from Cochrane Groups from around the world. 

Karla will introduce COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 related topics and we’ll hear about ongoing editorial priorities, achievements and best practice from Cochrane Groups and Review Group Networks.  There will also be an opportunity for questions and discussion.

The sessions are open to every Cochrane member and supporter, and they will be recorded and shared via our website for those who can’t attend. Do you have suggestions for topics you’d like to see covered in these webinars, or questions you’d like to ask? Please send them to Nazia Afzal – nafzal@cochrane.org
