Opportunities to contribute to Cochrane reviews in IBD

Following-on from Morris’s presentation during the research session at the Annual Meeting in Leeds, the Cochrane IBD and Functional Bowel Disorder Group is actively looking to work with any and all BSPGHAN members in completing further systematic reviews in IBD. There are lots of ways that members can contribute – including those with no experience all the way through to those with active reviews who simply need some help. If you are interested please contact Morris Gordon
