Getting involved as a Field Member
Fields are Cochrane entities that focus on dimensions of health care other than health problems, such as the setting of care (e.g. primary care), the type of consumer (e.g. older people), the type of provider (e.g. nurses) or the type of intervention (e.g. physical therapies). People working in Fields handsearch the specialised journals, help to ensure that priorities and perspectives in their field of interest are reflected in the work of review groups. They also compile specialised databases of reviews, co-ordinate activities with relevant agencies outside Cochrane, and comment on systematic reviews relating to their particular area. For more information on ways to get involved, contact the Field in which you have interest.
