The Université Laval Faculty of Medicine, in partnership with the CHU de Québec-Université Laval, has launched Cochrane Canada Francophone.
The Centre gives Québec’s health research community access to Cochrane resources as well as training programs and services to increase the use, production and dissemination of systematic reviews of the highest international standard. The Centre is co-directed by Drs Alexis Turgeon and France Légaré .
The Centre's main objectives are to:
- Produce and disseminate Cochrane Reviews within health services and healthcare communities;
- Train young health professionals and review experts in French; and
- Develop new analytical methods to assess evidence, with a particular focus on diagnostic testing and screening.
