Cochrane Canada Live presents you with a variety of learning opportunities that you can experience online for free. Cochrane Canada released The Cochrane Collaboration’s first webinar series in 2009, and it has since proven to be a favourite medium of training among Cochrane members in Canada and internationally. We focus on a wide range of topics that are relevant to people with beginner or advanced knowledge of The Cochrane Collaboration, Cochrane Reviews and The Cochrane Library. Webinars allow you to learn with renowned research experts from around the world without the time and expense of having to travel. All you need to participate is a computer with internet access and speakers.

  • Citizen Panels
    February 23, 2015 | 12 - 1pm (EST)
    Presented by Dr Francois-Pierre Gauvin
    Description: The new Citizen Panels program complements our Stakeholder Dialogues program. A citizen brief about a health-system problem (and its causes), options to address it, and key implementation considerations is prepared, which informs a deliberative dialogue among a group of citizens who are ethnoculturally, socioeconomically and in other ways diverse. This webinar will explore the key features of citizen panels, what we’ve learned about them, and how you can request one.
  • Health Systems Learning educational program 
    March 18, 2015 | 12 - 1pm (EDT)
    Presented by Dr Kaelan Moat
    Description: Health Systems Learning provides online and in-person training about how to strengthen health systems, and how to get cost-effective programs, services and drugs to those who need them. The first online course focuses on how to find and use evidence to accomplish this. This webinar will explore the key features of this educational program, introduce the audience to related tools and resources, and outline how you can enrol in one of the training opportunities.
