Empowering information consumers in the online digital revolution a focus group to explore new directions for Cochrane

Archie Cochrane, 1979: “It is surely a great criticism of our profession hat we have not organized a critical summary, by specialty, adapted periodically, of all relevant randomized controlled trials.”

Not a bad start …

Our mission statement: The Cochrane Collaboration is an international organisation that aims to help people make well-informed decisions about health care by preparing, maintaining and promoting the accessibility of systematic reviews of the effects of healthcare interventions.

Logical extension? All people Should get appropriate healthcare based on good evidence. Should we say it explicitly ?

All people

Should get appropriate healthcare

based on good evidence.

Do we envision a world in which healthcare decisions always imply filtering, consistently, for the best evidence, In all contexts?

Should Cochrane provide the evidence for such filters? …or also facilitate the techniques of filtering and promote the ideas of scientific inquiry to the public?

Why this question now? Until recently, healthcare decisions were made by doctors, informed indirectly by databases of studies and reviews. NOW decisions are made increasingly by healthcare users with Web 2.0 decision aids, WITHOUT good tools to filter for quality.
