Cochrane Qualitative & Implementation Methods Group 

Vienna? Are you planning on attending the Cochrane Colloquium in Vienna at the beginning of October? If so, then download the Group's handy planner with details of contacts and all the relevant qualitative and implementation sessions. 

Our focus is on methods and processes involved in the synthesis of qualitative evidence and the integration of qualitative evidence with Cochrane intervention reviews of effects. Our purpose is to advise Cochrane and its network of people on policy and practice and qualitative evidence synthesis, develop and maintain methodological guidance, and provide training to those undertaking Cochrane reviews. From 2012 our mandate has been extended to include methods for undertaking systematic reviews of implementation.
