21st Annual Cochrane Colloquium
September 19-23, 2013
Quebec City, Canada
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 are offered each year for the annual Cochrane Colloquium. This year, the Colloquium will be held in Quebec City, Canada, September 19 – 23, 2013. 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, the attendees must agree, in writing, to initiate and submit a systematic review to the Journal for publication consideration within 12 months.

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. The AAO-HNS/F has partnered with the Ear, Nose and Throat Disorders Group of Cochrane to create this unique educational opportunity, which features personal interaction with Martin Burton, Director of the UK Cochrane Center, and with the staff and editors of the Cochrane ENT Disorders Group.
Grantees will be selected based on their prior experience, statement of interest, and proposed topic. We seek to achieve a balance of subject areas.
