Dr. Ian Saldanha, MD, MPH, a doctoral student at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and a Graduate Research Assistant with the United States Cochrane Center, has been awarded the Thomas C Chalmers Award, granted to the best oral presenter, at the 22nd Cochrane Colloquium in Hyderabad, India.
Dr. Saldanha was given the award based on his presentation titled "Do Cochrane reviews measure enough what patients want? A collaborative study in HIV/AIDS". The study, co-authored in part by CEVG US Satellite Directors Drs. Kay Dickersin and Tianjing Li, examines the pre-specification and patient-centeredness of outcomes in 140 HIV/AIDS systematic reviews.
