Announcing the 2023 Cochrane Scholars
Three outstanding AAO-HNS scholars were selected for the prestigious Cochrane Colloquium.
The AAO-HNSF is committed to developing and disseminating evidence-based clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) within the field of otolaryngology and has partnered with the Cochrane Collaboration to further this goal.
The 2023 AAO-HNSF Cochrane Scholars program offers specialized training in the methodology and techniques of conducting systematic literature reviews to AAO-HNS members who apply and are selected to participate in the program. This unique learning experience equips the scholars with invaluable skills that can significantly enhance their research capabilities, fostering rigorous research that can positively impact patient care for those with otolaryngic conditions and diseases.
The 2023 Cochrane Colloquium is scheduled for September 4–6, 2023, in London, England, with a theme of, “‘Forward Together for Trusted Evidence.” This year’s Colloquium explores the future challenges for the trustworthiness of healthcare data and information while also celebrating 30 years of producing trusted evidence.
