Our collaborations

Collaborations outside the Cochrane

The Cochrane PEC collaborates on projects and maintains cooperative relationships with different organizations or institutions in the world interested in pre-hospital and emergency medicine. The Field proposes ways in which all of these entities can work together and builds relationships with people whose work benefits the pre-hospital and emergency community.

Collaborations inside the Cochrane

  • Cochrane Review Groups

The Cochrane PEC actually works to support Cochrane Review Groups that produce reviews relevant to pre-hospital and emergency health care. We identify all reviews, protocols and titles relevant to our Field and we notify gaps in evidence on a specific area of emergency medicine to the concerned Cochrane Review Group.

  • Cochrane Centres and Fields

Other projects relevant to the pre-hospital and emergency health care will be planned with the Cochrane Centres  and Cochrane Fields.

  • Evidence Aid

The Field also collaborates on the Evidence Aid. Evidence Aid is a co-ordinated, international initiative to improve effective and timely access to systematic reviews on the effects of interventions and actions of relevance before, during and after natural disasters, humanitarian crises and major healthcare emergencies, to improve health-related outcomes.

Evidence Aid welcomes the involvement of individuals and organisations who wish to work together to achieve this aim. For more information, read online www.evidenceaid.org or contact Claire Allen, Knowledge Manager callen@evidenceaid.org.
