"From the Canadian Cochrane Network and Centre to Cochrane Canada
Simplifying the Future
We are pleased to announce a name change to the current Canadian Cochrane Network and Centre. Effective immediately the former CCNC will now be known as Cochrane Canada.
This change is being implemented to simplify Cochrane communication efforts in Canada. Cochrane Canada encompasses the work of Cochrane across the country including: the Canadian Cochrane Centre (CCC), Review Groups, Fields, Regional sites (formerly known as Network sites) and their representatives, partner organization representatives (formerly affiliates), review authors, consumers – anyone working to further the goals of Cochrane in Canada.
The work and mandate of those within Cochrane Canada remain the same; the terminology changes were made out of communications concerns. Many have expressed difficulty with the title ‘Canadian Cochrane Network and Centre’. This is likely because ‘Network’ does not have an obvious defined meaning in this instance. Removing ‘Network’ allows our audience to focus on the important element – Cochrane. Cochrane Canada is easily explained as anyone who is a part of Cochrane in Canada. Similarly, the term ‘Network sites’ was not indicative of its true meaning, and therefore we believe ‘Regional sites’ is a better representation.
These changes fall under the effort of the Strategic Plan to raise the profile of Cochrane – in Canada. We hope to raise our profile and become more recognizable by simplifying the language to help Canadians identify us.
We have begun working the new language into communications materials and written reports, including the recent funding opportunity. You will see the new terminology more often as we begin to replace older products.
As a result of these changes, we will now use the web address ccc.cochrane.org to visit our website. However, the former address, ccnc.cochranre.org, remains functioning to accommodate the changeover.
Other changes of note include the Health Equity Field becoming the Campbell & Cochrane Equity Methods Group. We will also officially welcome the Upper Gastrointestinal and Pancreatic Diseases Review Group into Cochrane Canada in 2010.
Thank you for all your hard work and dedicated support. It is because of the members of Cochrane Canada that we have succeeded in our past endeavours. We look forward to continuing to work with you over the next five years and beyond.
Director, Canadian Cochrane Centre
