Gathering evidence to guide medical decision making is pivotal in modern day medicine. The Cochrane collaboration aims to perform systematic reviews and meta-analysis across all fields of medicine and Cochrane reviews are considered important landmarks in medical literature. Trusted evidence, informed decisions, better health. Authors, reviewers and methodologists act together with central offices at various locations across the globe to produce Cochrane reviews.

  • Coordinate the review process with all external reviewers and guide them through Cochrane policies, procedures and software.
