Methods Group Co-Convener Meeting

This is the annual meeting for all Co-Convenors of Methods Groups (recently billed as the ‘Methods Board’, but returning to its previous name after re-organization of the Cochrane Methods infrastructure). The Co-Convenors discuss matters relevant to the Cochrane methods community. Key topics for 2019 will include developing the Methods Group support and infrastructure, engagement with early-and-mid-career methodologists and discussion on methods integration in Cochrane and how we can bring together new methods developments in a way that informs decision makers and other end users. This meeting is a closed meeting for Co-Convenors of Methods Groups and the Methods Executive, only.
Methods Symposium: Developing robust review protocols in an increasingly complex world
Improving your Training Skills: A Workshop for Cochrane Trainers
09:00-17:00, Location to be confirmed
A good trainer is one who is confident of both content and approach. However, in the same way that our subject matter expertise constantly needs to be expanded simply to keep ahead, so too do we continuously need to think critically about how we go about facilitating a training event. This workshop provides an opportunity for such critical engagement, and is a one-day tour through the successful facilitation of such an event.

09:00 to 17:00, Location to be confirmed
