Cochrane Training

About us

The Cochrane Training website provides a range of learning opportunities for individuals interested in learning more about conducting, editing or reading a systematic review. Whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned reviewer, you will find new opportunities to learn here about Cochrane systematic review methodology and processes.

Cochrane Training is developed and maintained by the Development Directorate, based in the Central Executive Team. Our content is developed in partnership with subject matter experts from across the Cochrane community.

Finding your way around

Our online learning section will guide you through our collections of resources for individuals looking for self-directed, online learning. We provide online learning in a range of formats, including online courses, individual learning modules, videos, slidecasts and webinars.

Our learning events section contains our upcoming programme of Cochrane Learning Live virtual learning events, together with archives of recordings from previous sessions. You can also find the link to other Cochrane events and conferences, as well as an archive of webinars delivered by other Cochrane Groups.

Guides and handbooks will take you to the core texts to support your learning and activities with Cochrane.

For trainers, there is our Trainers' Hub, providing resources to support you in providing training in Cochrane methodologies and processes, as well as the chance to link up with other trainers through our Network email list.
