About us banner


Welcome to Cochrane Response, the new evidence consultancy initiative from Cochrane.

We have set up Cochrane Response to increase Cochrane’s capacity to respond to requests for commissioned evidence reviews. We provide tailored and responsive evidence services, and accessible review formats for healthcare commissioners on a fee-for-service basis.

Cochrane’s vision is a world of improved health where decisions about healthcare are informed by high quality, relevant and up-to-date synthesised research evidence. Through Cochrane Response we want to ensure that we are providing the evidence services and products that commissioners, policy makers and guideline developers need to deliver evidence-informed healthcare decision making.

We have put in place an experienced systematic review team that is managed by Gemma Villlanueva and Nicholas Henschke under the leadership of Chantelle Marie Garritty. Through this responsive, friendly and professional team we work collaboratively with commissioners and Cochrane networks to provide access to timely, targeted and accessible evidence services.

One of our early initiatives is targeted updates and we are also working with the Cochrane Rapid Reviews Methods Group to provide rapid review services.

This is an exciting time for Cochrane Response as we launch this new initiative for Cochrane.  Please contact me to learn more about our products and services or talk to us about your evidence synthesis projects.
