Understanding Evidence

Understanding Evidence

We all need to be able to make sense of evidence, whether we’re making decisions about treatments, or weighing up the latest health story to hit the headlines. In partnership with Students 4 Best Evidence, we are putting the spotlight on common errors and misunderstandings with our new occassional series, Understanding Evidence.

We want to bring together the ideas that underpin the way we think about evidence. We want to share resources and initiatives that can help with making sense of evidence, and we want to highligh opportunities to get involved with others with an interest in evidence.

Understanding Evidence launched with a special week of blogs in 2016. Thereafter, there are occasional blogs and content, all curated by us and our partners using #UnderstandingEvidence. Please join us on social media, share your ideas, and help us make sure that we challenge claims and think critically.


Please share blogs and blogshots from this series using #UnderstandingEvidence and don't forgot to tag us @CochraneUK
