July 12, Halifax, NS
– The Nova Scotia Health Research Foundation (www.nshrf.ca) has funded
 the development of Cochrane
Collaboration initiatives and networks in Nova Scotia.



The funding will support three elements that, together, will help grow
the capacity to carry out  Cochrane reviews
while enhancing their utilization:

  • the development of the Cochrane Prognosis Methodology Resource Group;
  • the maintenance and increased activity of the Dalhousie University
    Cochrane Network Site; and
  • the establishment of a Nova Scotia–based Regional Cochrane Training
    Centre.

The Cochrane Collaboration is an international not-for-profit and
independent organization dedicated to making up-to-date, accurate information
about the effects of health care readily available worldwide. It produces and
disseminates systematic reviews of health care

interventions and promotes the search for evidence in the form of clinical
trials and other studies of interventions. The major product of the
Collaboration is the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews which is published
quarterly as part of
The Cochrane
Library. 

These new Nova Scotia
activities in conjunction with the Cochrane Collaboration will benefit the province’s
research community, while building capacity to conduct, interpret and apply high
quality research syntheses.
