Cochrane First Aid

In April 2019, CEBaP launched the Cochrane First Aid Field. In addition to the “Cochrane Review Groups”, who have the task to conduct rigorous systematic reviews in a specific domain of health care (a specific healthcare problem), a “Cochrane Field” has as main task to contribute to knowledge translation (putting evidence into practice) to a specific target group (e.g. a specific setting, group of providers, consumers,…). This new member of the Cochrane Fields aspires to create a global independent network of people interested in developing, disseminating and implementing high-quality research evidence on first aid. Cochrane First Aid 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 building demand, knowledge translation, 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 (GFARC) of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies is a collaborating centre of Cochrane First Aid.
