Cochrane Sweden is an Associate Centre to the Nordic Cochrane Centre in Denmark. It is affiliated with the Department of Research & Development, Skåne University Hospital, in collaboration with the Faculty of Medicine at Lund University. Currently, we receive funding from Region Skåne, Lund University and Region Västra Götaland.
Our main aims are:
- To introduce review authors and other contributors to Cochrane methods, and support authors based in Sweden to prepare, publish and maintain their Cochrane reviews.
- To advocate for evidence-informed practice in Sweden, particularly through promoting access to Cochrane content and facilitating the use of Cochrane reviews to inform decision making.
We work towards a formal Swedish Cochrane Collaboration, by promoting evidence-informed health decision-making. We support and train new authors to produce Cochrane reviews and also work towards disseminating the best available information on healthcare to clinicians and patients.
