In April 2019, CEBaP launched Cochrane First Aid. Cochrane First Aid aspires to create a global independent network of people interested in developing, disseminating and implementing high-quality research evidence on first aid. It not only aims to link the major players in the field of first aid and Cochrane as the world’s major evidence-synthesizing organization, but also focuses on knowledge translation, i.e. supporting the evidence being put into practice. Other goals of Cochrane First Aid include building demand, stakeholder engagement and review production.
Cochrane First Aid is led by CEBaP Manager Emmy De Buck, and coordinated by 2 CEBaP researchers. The Global First Aid Reference Centre of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies is a collaborating centre of Cochrane First Aid.
Providing Cochrane evidence on first aid in easy-to-digest formats to everyone, including laypeople, is still one of the most important tasks for Cochrane First Aid. In 2023, more linguistic barriers were broken down: the Cochrane First Aid blogshots are now available in 13 languages. In addition, Cochrane First Aid started working on its two new strategic goals: facilitating primary research, and positioning themselves within Cochrane.
Below, you can find Cochrane First Aid’s most important achievements of 2023 for each of the 7 main strategic goals. For the full annual report, visit the Cochrane First Aid website.
In 2022, providing Cochrane evidence in easy-to-digest formats to everyone, including laypeople, has remained an important task for our colleagues who coordinate Cochrane First Aid (CFA). In addition, CFA has developed a new strategic plan for the upcoming 3 years, while navigating the uncertainty of the long-term strategic direction and organisational structure of Cochrane.

Although we did not anticipate it in 2020, we found ourselves still living with the COVID-19 pandemic throughout 2021. Providing reliable scientific evidence to everyone, including laypeople, in a timely manner, remained an important task for our colleagues who coordinate Cochrane First Aid (CFA).
In addition, CFA has further promoted the importance of evidence-based first aid, both in the evidence and first aid communities.
