Editor’s note: This post has been left available to view, as an example of our experiments with sharing evidence in creative ways, but please note that, unlike our normal blogs, it has not been updated and so may not represent the latest Cochrane Reviews are systematic reviews. In systematic reviews we search for and summarize studies that answer a specific research question (e.g. is paracetamol effective and safe for treating back pain?). The studies are identified, assessed, and summarized by using a systematic and predefined approach. They inform recommendations for healthcare and research. More.
Some of you (I hope many) will have read 9 year old Tess Griffin’s wonderful blog on Evidently Cochrane, telling us what it’s like for her being at school and managing cystic fibrosis (CF). Here she is, with Mum Ellie, sister Erin and brother Zac, who also has CF.
You can find out about the Cochrane Cystic Fibrosis and Genetic Disorders Group here. In her blog, Tess told us about the fantastic fundraising she did with her class for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and you can visit their website here and follow @cftrust on Twitter.
Thank you Ellie, Tess, Erin and Zac for making this film. We wish you, and not forgetting Dad Luke, a happy and healthy Christmas, with some lovely family time (and maybe a Barbie for Erin!)
