Announcing the launch of Cochrane Learning


Cochrane Learning is a new health professional development resource built upon the independent, high-quality evidence found in The Cochrane Library. Under the Cochrane Learning umbrella, The Cochrane Collaboration and Wiley are building a suite of online, evidence-based resources designed to close the knowledge translation gap, to support health professionals as part of their continuing professional development and to improve patient care. All activities are designed to meet the rigorous accreditation standards of the ACCME (Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education) and are based upon the high-quality evidence from The Cochrane Collaboration. Read the full press release.

Dr Cochrane activities will continue to be published throughout this year and other educational resources will launch throughout 2014.

We recognize the challenge of making the vast amounts of evidence generated through research more useful for informing decisions about health, and we are now committed to producing new products and tools that will help clinicians and other healthcare professionals to use more easily and effectively the high-quality, relevant and up-to-date synthesized research evidence contained in Cochrane systematic reviews.
