Cochrane Belgium

The Belgian Red Cross collaborates closely with Cochrane Belgium, located at the Belgian Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine (CEBAM). Cochrane Belgium is one of the Cochrane centres representing Cochrane worldwide. Cochrane is an international network of collaborators from over 130 countries, consisting of researchers, healthcare professionals, patients and others interested, working together to produce credible, accessible health information, free from commercial sponsorship or any other conflicts of interest.

The main goals of Cochrane Belgium are:

  • to promote Cochrane and its work in Belgium;
  • to increase the quality and number of (Cochrane) systematic reviews produced through training;
  • to improve the knowledge transfer from high-quality Cochrane evidence to Belgian health professionals, researchers, policymakers and the general public

One of CEBaP's researchers is involved in the systematic review trainings organized by Cochrane Belgium. In addition, we are also involved in other CEBAM projects, including the development of two neurology guidelines. One of our researchers provides methodological support for the development of guidelines on the diagnosis and management of two neuroinflammatory disorders, the Guillain-Barré syndrome and Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyradiculoneuropathy. These guidelines were commissioned by the European Academy of Neurology and the Peripheral Nerve Society and are expected to be published in the near future.



The mission of the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) is to identify and review international science and information relevant to cardiopulmonary resuscitation, emergency cardiovascular care and first aid, and to offer consensus on treatment recommendations. The evidence evaluation process is performed by different task forces.

One of the CEBaP staff members was appointed as a member of the ILCOR First Aid Task Force. This task force identifies and prioritizes first aid questions to be addressed and performs detailed evidence reviews using the GRADE methodology.
Furthermore, CEBaP is also selected to provide a Systematic Review Expert, to support ILCOR evidence reviewers in the development of comprehensive systematic reviews.


EBPracticeNet is a consortium of Belgian organisations for which Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) is a high priority, including the Belgian Red Cross. They host a digital database with evidence-based guidelines for Belgian care providers, which also includes our first aid guideline for laypeople
