The Cochrane Tobacco Addiction Group (TAG) was founded in 1996, making 2016 their 20th anniversary!!
The group will be using this year to look back on the last twenty; by highlighting their achievements, holding various promotional events and planning for the future!
“More specifically our plans for 2016 are:
To disseminate our work and achievements more through blog posts, other social media, journal editorials and promotion at conferences.
- We are putting together a programme of conference promotion & dissemination. For more information on what we are getting up to and the outcomes click here.
- We are happy to announce that we have won funding from the NIHR School for Primary Care Research to carry out a project called CTAG taps. CTAG taps stands for Cochrane TAG twentieth anniversary priority setting project. For more information about this project, which will run throughout 2016 please click here
- A one day priority setting workshop at the University of Oxford on Friday 17th June 2016. This workshop is part of the CTAG taps project and will bring together tobacco control experts across research, policy making, commissioning, clinical practice and the public. The aim of the workshop is to celebrate and publicise the work of the group so far, but most importantly to help guide the aims of Cochrane TAG so our reviews meet a wide range of needs, are relevant to current trends in smoking, and therefore create the highest possible impact, whilst guarding against research wastage.
