About us

Welcome to Cochrane Injuries

Cochrane Injuries editorial base is located at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, a designated WHO Collaborating Centre for Research and Training in Injury and Violence Prevention. Our international members include researchers, health care professionals and anyone using health services.

We are one of the 53 Cochrane Review Groups which are part of Cochrane and international not-for-profit and independent organisation, dedicated to making up-to-date, accurate information about the effects of healthcare readily available worldwide. 

Cochrane produces and disseminates systematic reviews of healthcare interventions, and promotes the search for evidence in the form of clinical trials and other studies of interventions. 

Our work involves preparing, maintaining and promoting the accessibility of systematic reviews in the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of traumatic injury, including the emergency resuscitation of seriously injured and burned patients.

Anyone interested in the work of  Cochrane Injuries can get involved in a variety of ways from writing a review to helping with translation. Training for authors is provided and more information about regional training can be found by contacting your nearest Cochrane Centre
