Research and Projects

The Australasian Cochrane Centre has a program of research exploring effective ways to inform healthcare decisions through the uptake of evidence. This includes projects investigating the synthesis, interpretation, dissemination and implementation of research evidence for clinical practice and policy.

To date, our research has been nested in a variety of clinical areas, with a focus on chronic conditions where the healthcare burden is large. We have completed or are undertaking projects in men's health, musculoskeletal health, diabetes and maternal and child health.

We hope the output from our research will result in:

  • a contribution to reliable methods for conducting systematic reviews
  • a contribution to informing researchers and disseminators of evidence about framing their research in ways which increases relevance to those making decisions about health care (consumers, practitioners and policy makers)
  • a contribution to effective methods of bringing about improved clinical practice and health policy through interventions to increase the uptake of evidence
  • the production of tools to promote global access to reliable health care information
