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"

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.
