Biography

Biographical/Historical Note

Established in December 2002 when the New England Cochrane Center Boston office, the New England Cochrane Center Providence office, and the San Francisco Cochrane Center merged to form a single registered entity with a main office and two branches. USCC is one of the 12 centers around the world that facilitate the work of the Cochrane Collaboration. Provides training and support for review authors, Trials Search Coordinators (TSCs), Review Group Coordinators (RGCs), editors, handsearchers, consumers and others. Since 2002, a special focus of the main office in Baltimore has been the development, growth and support of a national coalition of consumer advocacy organizations, whose members are educated in evidence-based healthcare decision making. Also supports the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL).
