Cochrane Australia is one of 45 centres worldwide that coordinate the activities of Cochrane at national and regional levels. Cochrane Australia promotes the use of evidence in healthcare decision-making and supports contributors to Cochrane who want to produce independent high quality evidence in the form of Cochrane systematic reviews. Cochrane’s principal output is the Cochrane Library which contains a database of over 7500 systematic reviews of healthcare interventions.
The Living Guidelines Program Manager is responsible for overseeing the delivery of high-quality living systematic reviews and guidelines in support of the new Australian Living Evidence Consortium led by Cochrane Australia. This collaboration is developing a new approach to health system performance underpinned by living systematic reviews and living guideline recommendations. The initial members of the Consortium work in the areas of stroke, diabetes, kidney disease and musculoskeletal health.
The Program Manager supervises staff and coordinates a range of significant and complex projects that design, produce and maintain living systematic reviews and guideline processes that lead to development of living recommendations.
The Program Manager and their team are responsible for delivering evidence synthesis and guideline recommendation outputs for national guidelines, including systematic review protocols; literature searches; incorporation of machine learning classifiers; evidence synthesis; development of GRADE evidence decision frameworks; presenting results to multi-stakeholder guideline groups; liaising with stakeholders for expertise and advice; and drafting and finalising reports.
The Program Manager is an expert in systematic review methods and evidence-based guideline development. They have expertise in national-scale evidence synthesis and guideline program management, including strategic planning, partnership development and program execution.
