The United States Cochrane Center (USCC) is one of the 14 centers around the world that facilitate the work of the Cochrane Collaboration. Centers share responsibility for helping to coordinate and support members of the Collaboration in areas such as training, and each center promotes objectives of the Collaboration in their region. The USCC is dedicated to promoting awareness of the Cochrane Collaboration and its objectives and access to the Cochrane Library in the United States.
A special mission of the USCC is to support Consumers United for Evidence-based Healthcare (CUE), a partnership with health and consumer advocacy organizations interested in integrating understanding and interpretation of evidence-based healthcare into their advocacy activities, strengthening the voice of consumers in healthcare research, and providing leadership in these areas.

Developing a Systematic Review Workshop (Baltimore)
This workshop guides participants through the steps of developing a systematic review. The workshop is designed for Cochrane review authors who have a registered title, have published a protocol in The Cochrane Library or who have a protocol approved for publication by a Cochrane Review Group. The workshop includes presentations about Cochrane methodology (identification of best evidence, quality assessment, synthesis and analysis) and hands-on practice using the Cochrane Collaboration’s Review Manager (RevMan) software.
