Consumers are the recipients of healthcare (patients or clients). Every Cochrane Review Group aims to have members who will represent the consumer viewpoint in deciding which reviews are done, what questions on which they focus, and how the results are presented.
We aim to have members who will represent the consumers' viewpoint on all our reviews. At present we have very few consumers involved, but if you would like to have input into the work we do, we would welcome your involvement.
The Cochrane Consumer Network coordinates the involvement of consumers within the Collaboration. You can also contact the UGPD group for more information.
