Timetable and registration

If you are interested in attending one of our 2023 workshops, please register your interest here to be notified once dates are confirmed.

Cochrane Australia runs workshops throughout the year to support current and prospective Cochrane authors, as well as others involved in systematic reviews of interventions. Our core workshop 'Writing a systematic review following Cochrane methods' runs over six half-day sessions. The course is free of charge to registered Cochrane authors but attracts a fee for authors of non-Cochrane reviews ($550 standard; $330 full-time students). Find out more about each workshop by following the relevant registration or information link.

The second edition of the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions was published in 2019. The updated guidance has been meticulously planned and brings together the latest methods and empirical research to help reviewers produce the most reliable and useful evidence synthesis. Some of the key changes include the new risk of bias tool for randomised trials, assessing missing evidence, practical guidance on planning and preparing for synthesis, and synthesising and presenting results when meta-analysis is not possible. The 'Writing a systematic review following Cochrane methods' course incorporates these changes.

Timetable for 2023
