13 respiratory conditions on Cochrane priority list

Thursday, 12 Feb 2015


Acute respiratory and airways conditions have made it onto the Cochrane priority list of topics to review 13 times.

Published for the first time, Cochrane says the list sets out topics that ‘best meet the needs of healthcare and health policy decision makers.’

They hope  publicising the list will act as a stimulus to encourage funders to support production of the reviews, and also attract experienced and skilled research teams to take on the vacant titles on the list.
