This set of training materials about writing a protocol can be used in your workshops and adapted to your needs.
For every Cochrane Review, it's important to plan the methods carefully in advance and this is done through writing and agreeing a protocol. Protocols are a required component of a Cochrane Review and are designed to avoid duplication and reduce bias. This presentation gives guidance on the rationale for writing a protocol for a Cochrane Review, the standard format for how protocols are structured and the content that you will need to provide.
The presentation can be downloaded as a PowerPoint presentation for your own training purposes.
These resources have been translated into several languages. Select an available language from the list at the left of this page.
A downloadable content map includes references for trainers as to where accompanying material is available (such as reference to appropriate sections in the Cochrane Handbook).
