The Université Laval Faculty of Medicine, in partnership with the CHU de Québec-Université Laval, hosts Cochrane Canada Francophone.
Cochrane Canada Francophone gives the Francophone 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 in French. It is directed by Dr. Alexis Turgeon. Dr. France Légaré is deputy director.
The group's main objectives are to:
- Produce and disseminate Cochrane Reviews within health services and healthcare communities, specifically the Francophone community;
- 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.
