We are inviting one response from each Cochrane Review Group, Review Group Network, Geographic Group, Field and Methods Group. You can leave any questions blank that do not apply to your Group.

The survey should take about 15-20 minutes to complete.
 
We will make a summary of all COVID-19 activities available to Cochrane Groups, but any other feedback you provide in the survey will be treated in confidence and anonymised in reports. We will use your feedback to inform next steps in our COVID-19 response including communication, engagement and support across Cochrane.
Your Cochrane activities related to COVID-19

Question Title

* 2. Please use the boxes below to say what, if anything, your Group has been doing to respond to COVID-19 so far?

Please complete the categories a. - h. below where relevant to your Group. We don’t expect that Groups would do all these things. It doesn’t matter in which category you put your activities.

Example: Sharing, translating or repackaging Cochrane evidence
Sent monthly newsletter about new Cochrane evidence to healthcare professionals and policy makers

If you already have a summary of what you are doing, you can upload it here instead of filling out the boxes, or email your documents to support@cochrane.org.
