Get involved

There are numerous ways for trainees (and others) to get involved in the work of Cochrane:


Upcoming events include Cochrane's next global health conference: Cochrane Colloquium Edinburgh 2018, 16-18 September 2018. Registration will open in late 2017.

Write or comment on an Evidently Cochrane blog

Evidently Cochrane is Cochrane UK's blog. It aims to make Cochrane evidence really accessible, and to encourage discussion about it, through blogs which usually feature new or updated Cochrane Reviews on a health topic. You can register your interest to blog here. 

Task Exchange

Task Exchange connects people working in health evidence with people who have the time and skills to help. Choose from a range of tasks - from translation to data extraction - that match your expertise and availability. 

Cochrane Crowd

Anyone can take part in Cochrane Crowd; a collaborative volunteer effort to help categorise and summarise healthcare evidence. 


Classmate is an innovative tool for teachers of evidence-based medicine. It enables trainers, teachers and others to use the Cochrane Crowd tasks for their students.
