Cochrane Training Courses – new for July and August

A further meeting is available in July (see other courses and meetings available in July, here):

3 Day Comparative Effectiveness Research Meeting, 25-27 July 2011, Santa Fe, USA

This meeting is aimed at professionals in clinical practice and research, trial management, technology assessment, public health, epidemiology, quality assessment, health economics and outcomes research, and policy development  who need to develop a deeper understanding of CER concepts, applied methods, and policy issues. Participants should have an understanding of clinical research and some familiarity with CER literature.

The three day Institute will consist of large luncheon plenary sessions and smaller breakout sessions in the mornings and afternoons.  The luncheon plenaries will feature a lecture by a critical figure in the field of comparative effectiveness research followed by a reactor panel and questions by the audience.

For August, there is one course/workshop available:

Introduction to Writing a Cochrane Review, 11-12 August 2011, Women and Children’s Hospital, Adelaide, Australia

This two-day workshop is designed for new authors starting a Cochrane systematic review. A mixture of presentations and hands-on sessions will give you an overview of all the methods required to write your protocol and get started on the review.
