Cochrane Journal Club

A very useful alternative when searching for a last minute evidence-based journal club presentation, is the new Cochrane Journal Club.

Cochrane Journal Club is a free, monthly publication that introduces a recent Cochrane review, together with relevant background information, a podcast explaining the key points of the review, discussion questions to help you to explore the review methods and findings in more detail, and complete downloadable PowerPoint presentations containing key figures and tables. You can even contact the review authors with your questions.

Aimed at trainees, researchers and clinicians alike, every Cochrane Journal Club article is specially selected from the hundreds of new and updated reviews published in each issue of The Cochrane Library representing diverse clinical topics, and each one focuses on a review of special interest, such as practice-changing reviews, new methodology and evidence-based practice.

For those working on their own presentation for journal club, the Cochrane Powerpoints also provide a good design template for developing your own presentations.
