Introducing the Disability Coordinating Group of the Campbell Collaboration

About the Webcast

The Campbell Collaboration is an international research network that promotes positive social and economic change through the production and use of systematic reviews and other evidence synthesis for evidence-based policy and practice. On May 5, 2017, the Board of the Campbell Collaboration approved establishing the Disability Coordinating Group (DCG). It joins the current six Coordinating Groups (CGs): Crime and Justice, Education, International Development, Social Welfare, Methods, and Knowledge Translation and Implementation. The CGs are the primary entities that produce, maintain, and disseminate Campbell systematic reviews. They support the development and use of Campbell reviews and provide editorial services and support to review teams.

Participants will learn how to submit systematic reviews to the DCG and what assistance is available for review teams, both from KTDRR and from the DCG, in developing reviews that meet appropriate standards, methods and guidelines. This webcast is an activity of the Community of Practice on Evidence in Disability and Rehabilitation Research (CoP-EDR).
