We’ve started a new blog via the Evidence-based Social Intervention program at the University of Oxford. There aren’t many posts yet, but stay tuned for evidence-based news, policy analysis and general discussion.
The Cochrane Collaboration is “an international network of more than 28,000 dedicated people from over 100 countries, who work together to help healthcare providers, policy-makers, patients, their advocates and carers, make well-informed decisions about health care, by preparing, updating, and promoting the accessibility of Cochrane Reviews.” So far, Cochrane has publised over 5,000 reviews online in theCochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, which is part of The Cochrane Library. Cochrane also has one of the largest databases of randomised controlled trials in the world, called CENTRAL.
Here are some links from the recent Cochrane Collaboration Colloquium in Auckland, where you can view some of the talks and posters. Many of these are excellent and speak to core issues in Evidence Based Policy and Practice that link to both the EBSI and CSP courses at the University of Oxford.
Plenaries from this colloquium are available for viewing here.
