Cochrane Canada Live presents you with a variety of learning opportunities that you can experience online and at no charge. Cochrane Canada released The Cochrane Collaboration’s first webinar series in 2009, and it has since proven to be a favourite medium of training among Cochrane members, internationally. We focus on a wide range of topics that are relevant to people with beginner or advanced knowledge of The Cochrane Collaboration, Cochrane Reviews and The Cochrane Library. Webinars allow you to learn with renowned research experts from around the world without the time and expense of having to travel. All you need to participate is a computer with internet access and speakers.

"Great format and medium for interacting with colleagues around the world"

  • Six Scenarios - Risk of Bias Challenge
    January 28, 2015 | 12 - 1pm (EST)
    Presented by Alain Mayhew
    Description: This will be an interactive discussion of challenging issues related to the Cochrane Risk of Bias tool for RCTs.

  • Citizen Panels
    February 23, 2015 | 12 - 1pm (EST)
    Presented by Dr Francois-Pierre Gauvin
    Description: The new Citizen Panels program complements our Stakeholder Dialogues program. A citizen brief about a health-system problem (and its causes), options to address it, and key implementation considerations is prepared, which informs a deliberative dialogue among a group of citizens who are ethnoculturally, socioeconomically and in other ways diverse. This webinar will explore the key features of citizen panels, what we’ve learned about them, and how you can request one.
  • Health Systems Learning educational program
    March 18, 2015 | 12 - 1pm (EDT)
    Presented by Dr Kaelan Moat
    Description: Health Systems Learning provides online and in-person training about how to strengthen health systems, and how to get cost-effective programs, services and drugs to those who need them. The first online course focuses on how to find and use evidence to accomplish this. This webinar will explore the key features of this educational program, introduce the audience to related tools and resources, and outline how you can enrol in one of the training opportunities.

GRADE webinars

The GRADE working group and the Cochrane Applicability and Recommendations Methods Group (ARMG) are setting up a series of webinars to answer questions about the GRADE approach. The monthly webinars began in February 2013. All sessions are recorded on Elluminate (tech support provided by the PAHO) and you are able to watch them for free anytime, anywhere. Speakers answering your questions include Gordon Guyatt, Holger Schünemann, Paul Glasziou, Elie Akl, and Jan Brozek. If you have any question about the GRADE system (no matter if you consider it basic or advance) you are welcome to send it to: chairceb@mcmaster.ca
It is IMPORTANT that the subject of your mail be: Question for GRADE and Cochrane ARMG webinar
Questions will be discussed by the speakers throughout the sessions. Once we have the questions we will announce the specific website so you can all watch the webinars.
