Cochrane Collaboration

The Cochrane Collaboration is an international network of health professionals and consumers established to prepare, maintain and promote the accessibility of reviews in the Cochrane Library.

The Cochrane Breast Cancer Group and the Cochrane Prospective Meta-Analysis (PMA) Methods Group are both based at the CTC.

Cochrane Breast Cancer Group

The Cochrane Breast Cancer Group is committed to the development of evidence relating to the prevention, early detection and treatment of breast cancer. Our activities are coordinated by a team of editors based at the University of Sydney and an editorial board composed of clinicians, methodologists and consumers from Australia, Belgium, Italy, the UK and the USA.

Cochrane Prospective Meta-Analysis (PMA) Methods Group
The Cochrane PMA Methods Group is one of several groups who advise the Cochrane Collaboration on methods for improving the validity and precision of systematic reviews.
Our core activity is to advise on or work with researchers in relation to all elements of a meta-analysis prospectively, including the ability to influence trial design. Our group is managed by methodologists based in Australia and the USA.
