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"

Supporting Evidence-Informed Policy-Making Webinar Series
Beginning in October 2014, the Canadian Cochrane Centre will partner with the Cochrane Policy Liaison Office to host a series of monthly webinars on topics related to health care policies. For more information on this series or to register, click here.
Keep an eye out for:
- Rapid Response Program
November 20, 2014 | 12 - 1pm (EST)
Presented by Dr Mike Wilson
Description: The new rapid-response service provides responses to urgent requests from Canadian policymakers and stakeholders for evidence about health-system challenges, and it complements existing programs targeted at other domains such as health technologies. The turnaround is three-, 10- or 30-business days, in the form of a rapid (knowledge) synthesis. This webinar will examine the features of the rapid-response service as illustrated by work in Ontario, how to reach the McMaster Health Forum about setting up a similar program in other Canadian provinces and territories, and how to submit a request for your immediate needs.
- Stakeholder Dialogues
January 21, 2015 | 12 - 1pm (EST)
Presented by Dr John Lavis
Description: This signature Stakeholder Dialogues program – our ‘full-serve’ approach – involves preparing an evidence brief about a health-system problem (and its causes), options to address it, and key implementation considerations, and convening a deliberative dialogue among the policymakers, stakeholders and researchers likely to be involved in or affected by decisions related to the challenge. This webinar will explore the key features of stakeholder dialogues, what we’ve learned about them and how you can request one.
- 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.

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: email@example.com
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.
