Cochrane's Spokesperson Policy

Cochrane is an international collaboration involving more than 63,000 individuals from many different institutions and organizations. These individuals are our most valuable asset and play an important role in helping Cochrane achieve its Strategy to 2020 and implementation of its Knowledge Translation Framework. Because individuals who contribute to Cochrane often have multiple affiliations (both inside and outside of Cochrane), it is important we establish clear guidance about who can speak officially on behalf of Cochrane and the circumstances in which it is appropriate to do so.

Please note that Groups need to follow the Spokesperson Policy in their dissemination planning.

For more information on how to implement this Policy, please feel free to use the resources that the Knowledge Translation Department (KT) has prepared, or contact Cochrane’s Head of Knowledge Translation, Jo Anthony at janthony@cochrane.org
