A Cochrane review is an ideal undertaking for any health professional seeking to conduct clinically-oriented research as well as those initiating a PhD program as most reviews can be completed within one year. Completed reviews are published on the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (Impact Factor 7.755 as of July 2018) and indexed in Medline. Conducting a review provides experience in critical appraisal of the literature and several other aspects of evidence-based medicine.
Lung Foundation Australia together with Cochrane Airways Australia now invite applications for the 2021 Lung Foundation Australia - Cochrane Airways Australia Systematic Review Scholarship. This scholarship is intended to assist with the completion, update and/or presentation of a Cochrane Systematic Review. The systematic review needs to be within the scope of respiratory medicine covered by Cochrane Airways see the Cochrane Airways website for more information.
There are several options for choosing a review topic. These include initiating a new review or updating a review previously published, especially if in a rapidly advancing area. Assistance can be provided with protocol development and searches by members of the satellite of Cochrane Airways Australia and the central Cochrane Airways Group Editorial Office in London.
Valued at $2,500 (+ GST) awarded funds may be used in a number of ways; some examples of appropriate use include:
