DISCLAIMER: THE VIEWS AND OPINIONS EXPRESSED BY DR. MICHAEL BROWN ON THIS SGEM EPISODE ARE HIS OWN AND DO NOT REPRESENT THE VIEWS OR OPINIONS OF THE COCHRANE COLLABORATION OR ANY OTHER ORGANIZATION.
I took this opportunity of being together in Las Vegas for the SAEM meeting to discuss with Mike the following issues:
- What is the Cochrane Collaboration?
- Who was Archie Cochrane?
- What is the Cochrane Mission Statement?
- How has Cochrane reorganized itself?
- What was the recent Cochrane controversy?
Here is a video from Dr. Damian Rowland from the wonderful DFTB17 Conference. The presentation is called “When we get the wrong answer from the right research”. In this talk Damian discusses Cochrane.
The SGEM will be back next episode for the start of Season#8. Our goal continues to be to try and cut the knowledge translation window down from over ten years to less than one year using the power of social media (FOAMed).
