PAHO and the Canadian Cochrane Centre Join Efforts

Systematic Reviews produced by The Cochrane Collaboration meet the highest standards and provide valuable evidence to inform health care decisions covering many aspects relevant to public health and primary care, including research on health policy and systems.

Health researchers and others working in the health field now have access to online learning opportunities to improve research skills and make the most of research evidence by integrating it into health care policy and clinical practice, through an agreement signed in March 2010 by the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and the Canadian Cochrane Centre (CCC), of The Cochrane Collaboration.

PAHO and the Canadian Cochrane Centre joined efforts to implement training initiatives for users and producers of systematic reviews in the Americas.

One initiative underway is Cochrane Canada Live, a series of webinars (web seminars) now available on the internet organized with speakers connected to The Cochrane Collaboration.

These webinars are coordinated by the CCC and delivered through internet-based platforms with the support of PAHO. Registration for the webinars and access to recorded sessions can be done through the CCC website: ccnc.cochrane.org/cochrane-canada-live-webinars.

Additional resources can also be found at PAHO’s Research Portal, including case studies highlighting why research is a sound investment.
