Opportunities to work with researchers
Clinical research networks provide researchers with a forum to discuss research. Each network has a clinical studies group to ensure it develops a balanced portfolio of high quality clinical research studies and has a route through which new studies can be developed. Each network also has a strategy for involving patients and the public.
Where the need is not for a primary study, but for a systematic review, top ten priorities may be of interest to the Cochrane Collaboration
review groups. Patients and clinicians can work with experienced reviewers in preparing systematic reviews of the effects of treatment. They can also offer to help by commenting on reviews being prepared by other people. Contact details for all Cochrane review groups are available in The Cochrane Library
