2014 Cochrane Conclave
Systematic Review Training
July 7-8, 2014
Oxford, United Kingdom
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.
Four travel grants of up to $2,500 will be offered to attend the 2014 Cochrane Conclave in Oxford, England, July 7-8, 2014. The Cochrane Conclave is the result of an AAO-HNS/F partnership with the UK Cochrane Center and the staff and editors of the Cochrane ENT Disorders Group. Attendees will be introduced to evidence summaries of healthcare interventions, and will learn state-of-the-art techniques for producing systematic reviews and meta-analyses.
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 July 9, 2015).*
