The Journal Club

Index of Journal Club articles

The Cochrane Journal Club  

The Cochrane Journal Club is a free, monthly publication that introduces a recent Cochrane review, together with relevant background information, a podcast explaining the key points of the review, discussion questions to help you to explore the review methods and findings in more detail, and downloadable PowerPoint slides containing key figures and tables.  You can even contact the review authors with your questions.  Getting involved and joining the debate.

The Journal Club is aimed at trainees, researchers and clinicians alike.

The CSzG Journal Club

These titles refer to CSzG review publications.  The data referred to in the Journal Club articles below will relate to a version of the systematic review publication up to 2012.  Every two years new trials are searched for and reviews updated to reflect the new research, therefore data noted in Journal Club articles may not be accurate according to the most recent version of a systematic review.  The information and discussion questions should still prove useful however.
