Cochrane Consumer Network

Cochrane aims to use this network to appeal to the people who are recipients of medical care. Patients, carers, dependents, or self-help groups can participate in Cochrane through the Cochrane Consumer Network. This allows, for example, laypeople to become involved in the development of Cochrane Reviews and to comment on systematic reviews. 

A moderated email list connects laypeople and patients with those active in Cochrane together. More information can be found on the  Website from the Cochrane Consumer Network. If you are interested in being added to the email list, please contact our English-speaking colleagues at
Furthermore, the Cochrane Consumer Network regularly publishes an English-language newsletter.
