Timetable and registration

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 three-day workshop 'Writing a systematic review following Cochrane methods' is free of charge to registered Cochrane authors but attracts a fee for authors of non-Cochrane reviews ($770 standard; $550 full-time students). Find out more about each workshop by following the relevant registration or information link.

In 2019 a major update of the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions will be released. A lot has changed In the 10 years since the current edition was published, particularly around the inclusion of non-randomised and qualitative evidence, and the quantitative synthesis and presentation of results when meta-analysis is not possible. The three-day introductory course will incorporate these and other new methods.

We're also pleased to offer a course in systematic reviews and meta-analysis of prognosis studies (19-21 June 2019), hosted by the NHMRC Clinical Trials Centre in Sydney and presented by members of the Cochrane Prognosis Methods Group from the Netherlands.

Timetable for 2019
