Cochrane Germany/IfEM: New member of Cochrane Public Health Europe

The team of Cochrane Germany and the Institute for Evidence in Medicine (IfEM), Medical Center – University of Freiburg are a new member of the European satellite of Cochrane’s Public Health review group. Cochrane Public Health Europe (CPHE) was founded in March 2015 to promote evidence-informed public health research and to build a stronger base of Cochrane Public Health in Europe. With Cochrane Germany and the IfEM, CPHE now comprises seven groups and around twenty public health experts in the three German-speaking countries. Cochrane Germany/IfEM has already been a close partner of CPHE and has contributed to various tasks, such as recruiting and training new reviewers and translating plain language summaries and abstracts of Cochrane reviews. Prof. Jörg Meerpohl - Director of Cochrane Germany and IfEM - and Dr. Lukas Schwingshackl, senior researcher and expert in nutritional epidemiology, will participate in the dissemination and translations of Public Health reviews but also in other CPHE tasks.
