Cochrane Canada Live presents you with a variety of learning opportunities that you can experience online for free. Cochrane Canada released Cochrane’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 Cochrane, Cochrane Reviews and 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.
