About us

Cochrane Training is a program of the Learning & Support Department of the Cochrane Central Executive. Click here to meet our team, or find our contact information.

Our mission is to provide outstanding, inclusive learning and support programmes that effectively enhance the skills, knowledge and experience of current and potential contributors, enable high quality participation in diverse Cochrane activities, and enable the effective implementation of Cochrane policies and procedures.

Our work is guided by the Cochrane Training and Professional Development Strategy, developed in 2014 through an active process of consultation with Cochrane's contributors. We have four main goals:

  1. PRODUCING EVIDENCE
    To provide learning opportunities to support Cochrane contributors engaged in the production and publication of high-quality, relevant, up-to-date systematic reviews.
  2. MAKING OUR EVIDENCE ACCESSIBLE
    To provide learning opportunities to support Cochrane contributors who are working to ensure that Cochrane evidence is accessible and useful.
  3. ADVOCATING FOR EVIDENCE
    To build recognition of Cochrane as a leading provider of learning opportunities in evidence synthesis.
  4. BUILDING AN EFFECTIVE and SUSTAINABLE ORGANISATION
    To provide a sustainable, continually improving programme of learning opportunities that enable Cochrane to continue as a diverse, inclusive, international organisation and that effectively harness the enthusiasm, skills and knowledge of our contributors.

We are supported by the Cochrane Learning & Support Advisory Committee.
