Launch of Cochrane US Network
Cochrane launches a new network of US institutions to promote evidence-based health care and public health
Moving forward with establishing the Cochrane US Network
As announced in September Cochrane is currently working towards establishing a US wide network. Consultative meetings were held in September 2018 (during the Cochrane Colloquium in Edinburgh), and October 2018 (in Fort Worth, Texas).
Work begins to establish a new Cochrane Network across the US
Cochrane is pleased to announce plans to establish a new Cochrane Network across the US.An internal review of Cochrane’s structures carried out in 2016 highlighted that a single Center approach for a country the size of the US has many limitations, and that a Network of multiple groups based across the country is a better model to deliver a wider range and expanded scale of Cochrane activities, share collaboration across and between institutions, and create greater impact of that work in diverse regions and different contexts.

Testing Treatments book now available for free in 15 languages
The book Testing Treatments has been translated into 15 languages with more coming soon. Testing Treatments was written to address a fundamental healthcare question: ‘How do we ensure that research into medical treatments best meets the needs of patients?’ Because research often fails to answer this question, and because many treatments are not based on sound evidence, the authors set out to promote better and more critical public evaluation of the effects of medical treatments.
What is Cochrane?
Cochrane exists so that healthcare decisions get better. Cochrane is a global independent network of researchers, professionals, patients, carers, and people interested in health. Many of our contributors are world leaders in their fields - medicine, health policy, research methodology, or consumer advocacy - and our groups are situated in some of the world's most respected academic and medical institutions.
What are systematic reviews?
"What are systematic reviews?" If you’re a Cochrane contributor and have ever attempted to explain Cochrane’s work to someone, chances are you’ve tried to answer this question. And if you’re reading this because you’re new to Cochrane and the work we do, you may be wondering about this too.
