Welcome to Cochrane Abdomen and Endocrine Network

Welcome to Cochrane Abdomen and Endocrine Network, one of Cochrane’s Review Group Networks launching in 2018.

The formation of this thematic network is part of Cochrane’s CRG Transformation Programme, which sets out the changes we will be making to ensure Cochrane addresses the challenges it faces in relation to the production of a comprehensive collection of timely, high-quality reviews, relevant to our stakeholders.

Our Networks provide an opportunity to optimize leadership and support at a new editorial level within Cochrane. Cochrane Long-term Conditions and Ageing consists of the following Cochrane Review Groups:

  •  Colorectal 
  •  HepatoBiliary
  •  Gut
  •  Kidney and Transplant
  •  Metabolic and Endocrine Disorders

These Cochrane Review Groups will work together to produce systematic reviews covering many topics relating to long-term conditions and ageing, and to assist decision-makers who access and use Cochrane evidence in their work. Cochrane Abdomen and Endocrine Network aims to provide the best source of accurate and up-to-date information, especially about the prevention, early detection, and treatments for anyone diagnosed with relevant conditions.

I am delighted to be sharing our new Network with you, together with our reviews, knowledge and resources across many topics in line with Cochrane’s mission of promoting evidence-based medicine for health decision-making across the world.

My best wishes,

Cindy Farquhar
