"The Cochrane Collaboration and Systematic Reviews", Tora Horvath, Managing Editor, Cochrane HIV/AIDS Group Systematic Reviews Demystified!

This featured presentation is intended to help practicing clinicians and clinical researchers in synthesizing research into useful evidence by learning how to use and conduct systematic reviews. Tara Horvath will address the core methods for conducting systematic reviews of the scientific literature, and will focus on the rigorous, high-quality reviews of the Cochrane Collaboration. Cochrane systematic reviews help clinicians, public health practitioners, policy makers and consumers in making evidence-based health care decisions, and provide direct translation of cutting-edge research into practice. The Cochrane Library database is available to all LLUH entities through the site license provided by the Del E. Webb Library.
