Everyone is welcome to join the Cochrane collaboration. Cochrane is a global network with 11,000 members and over 68,000 supporters who come from more than 130 countries worldwide. Our volunteers and contributors are researchers, health professionals, patients, carers, and people passionate about improving health outcomes for everyone, everywhere. If you would like to be a part of Cochrane, you can find more information at Join Cochrane. You are also welcome to contact Cochrane Sweden, if you would like to contribute to our efforts in Sweden.
At Cochrane Sweden, we also have visiting researchers from universities who come and work with us for a short period of time. Here are a few examples of researchers who have trained with us at our Centre:
Franciszek is a medical student from Poznan University of Medical Sciences. His interests are neonatology and evidence-based medicine. Franciszek worked at the Centre in 2019 for six weeks. He completed a systematic review on harms in Cochrane reviews on screening. Though now back to Poland, he is still preparing systematic reviews with our Centre, including a review of diagnostic studies on glucose monitoring in preterm infants.
|Petter Brattström |
Petter was a last year medical student from Lund University when he visited our Centre in 2019. Petter wanted to gain some 'hands on experience' with systematic review work.
He began his Cochrane experience with a four-week training period as an intern in Krems an der Donau at Cochrane Austria, where he was introduced to the methodology of systematic reviews and meta-analysis. This was part of a 20-week research project at our Centre. This resulted in Petter co-authoring two systematic reviews, one as part of his Master’s thesis. Petter was also selected to be interviewed by Cochrane on his work as part of their 30 under 30 series. Read the full interview here.
Sandra Nylander Vujovic
Chiara is a junior medical doctor from Italy. She is interested in paediatrics, neonatology and evidence-based medicine. Chiara visited the Centre in 2019 for three months where she had the opportunity to work on two reviews, one of these is the Cochrane review update of Opioids for neonates receiving mechanical ventilation. During her stay, she also wrote a Students for Evidence blog on her Cochrane International Mobility experience.
