Cochrane Scholars Program
2018 Cochrane Conclave
Systematic Review Training
September 15-18, 2018
The AAO-HNS/F leadership and SAGE, publisher of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery, have identified a need to train otolaryngologists in the conduct and publication of systematic literature reviews. Systematic reviews have a high citation impact, and serve as the foundation for evidence-based practice guidelines, clinical performance measures, and maintenance of specialty certification.
Three travel grants of up to $3,200 will be offered to attend the 2018 Cochrane Conclave in Edinburgh, Scotland September 15-18, 2018. The Colloquium features a full scientific program and nearly 60 training and discussion workshops related to systematic review. In return for a travel grant to attend the meeting, grant recipients must agree to initiate and submit a systematic review to Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery for publication consideration within 12 months (by September 19, 2019).*
Attendees will be introduced to the Cochrane Collaboration, the world leader in evidence summaries of healthcare interventions, and will learn state-of-the-art techniques for producing systematic reviews and meta-analyses.*
