September 30, 2015

Dr.Jeremy Grimshaw has been elected co-chair of the Campbell Collaboration, an international research network that produces systematic reviews on the effects of social interventions in crime and justice, education, international development and social welfare. The international secretariat is located in Oslo and hosted by the Norwegian Knowledge Centre for Health Services. “I strongly believe that systematic reviews are the ‘right’ units of knowledge to inform public policy and personal decisions across all areas of human endeavour, and that it’s important to ensure that systematic reviews covering a broad range of topics are available for societies and their citizens,” said Dr. Grimshaw. Dr. Grimshaw is a long standing contributor to The Cochrane Collaboration, which focuses on health-related systematic reviews, and he has led Cochrane Canada since 2005. He has completed 35 systematic reviews (including 10 Cochrane reviews) on a wide range of topics.
