Do you use questionnaires in your role for Cochrane? Cochrane Training are running a series of webinars giving practical advice on how best to use questionnaires to get information that will be useful to you.
Across Cochrane, we conduct a number of questionnaire surveys on an annual basis, often to seek opinions from internal and external colleagues on our offer or development of our work.Contributor's Information Contributor's name: Chris Watts Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Cochrane produces podcasts in a number of languages. For example, a recently published review by Ingvil Saeterdal and colleagues on “Interventions aimed at communities for informing and/or educating about early childhood vaccination” now has podcasts available in five languages - Catalan, English, French, German, and Portuguese – thanks to the efforts of a network of collaborators. To our knowledge, this is the first time that the Catalan language has been used in a formal Cochrane output.Contributor's Information Contributor's name: CEAD Email address: email@example.com

William (Bill) Silverman (1924-2004) was one of the founders of American neonatal medicine. He was honoured repeatedly as one of the pioneers in his specialty; however, he often evoked somewhat mixed responses amongst his colleagues because he was in the habit of raising troubling questions about the scientific basis and ethics of his and their practices. Like many of the people who have helped to establish Cochrane, Bill Silverman could be regarded as a ’troublemaker’. As he reiterated frequently, however, criticism is a form of troublemaking that can help to drive progress.External link for more information: http://community.cochrane.org/about-us/awards-scholarsh...
