A New Twist on an Old Idea

On March 25th, I’ll be helping to moderate a journal club discussion on the most recent Cochrane systematic review of interventions to prevent obesity in children. The twist? It’s all done on Twitter via the Cochrane Child Health Journal Club, which is part of a pilot study to test the use of social media to enable knowledge translation and exchange. For reference, the most recent Twitter Journal Club on asthma is archived here.

What: Twitter journal club on interventions for preventing obesity in children

When: Wednesday, March 25th, 2:00pm Vancouver | 3:00pm Edmonton & Calgary | 5:00pm Toronto | 9:00pm United Kingdom | 8:00am Thursday March 26, Melbourne, Australia

Where: Follow #CochraneChild on Twitter and join in the discussion by including #CochraneChild in all your posts. See these tips for participating in a Twitter chat.
