Learning and support initiatives

Cochrane SA undertakes two main types of learning support. The first is for those undertaking reviews (the authors) in protocol development and in the use of the essential review software like GRADE and RevMan. Fellowships are awarded to Cochrane authors to allow them time out for periods of additional support, mentorship and dedicated review writing.

At the other end of the process, Cochrane SA undertakes skills development on the use of reviews for health practitioners, students and others; as well as awareness-raising to increase the understanding and implications of review content for policy makers and other stakeholders.
