Twitter conversations

Cochrane UK has, with patients and other healthcare consumers1, co-designed a short code of conduct for Cochrane UK-led events (including this Colloquium). The aim is to encourage discussion in a way that is welcoming, inclusive and mutually respectful:

  • Lively debate is encouraged but please be polite and respectful of others’ views.
  • Please do not harass or intimidate others.
  • Participants are asked to focus on the topics and questions raised.
  • Cochrane UK will not respond to questions and comments not relevant to the matter under discussion. If individuals would like to raise issues with Cochrane outside of the scope of the conversation, or have questions that would be better answered by other Cochrane entities, we will do our best to direct individuals to alternate channels. To contact Cochrane with a comment or complaint, please see here. To submit a comment on a Cochrane Review or protocol, please see here. 
  • Individuals affiliated with Cochrane should refer to the Cochrane Spokesperson Policy, which provides guidance about who can speak officially on behalf of Cochrane and the circumstances in which it is appropriate to do so. Please see here.
