Closing discussion

The Cochrane Gynaecology and Fertility Group (CGF) (formerly the Menstrual Disorders and Subfertility Group) is concerned with the systematic evaluation of the management and treatment of menstrual disorders and subfertility. It combines the work of two previous groups: the Menstrual Disorders Group was registered in August 1995 after an exploratory meeting in June 1995, and merged with the Subfertility Group in June 1997. This year the group is celebrating 20+ years.

We celebrated 20 years of our Cochrane review group recently  in Oxford, UK, with a series of workshops and a symposium.  

The Workshop sessions were busy but productive, and participants have called for more of this hands-on learning.

Symposium: Sir Iain Chalmers set the scene in launching our symposium. Here we all are on 2 April
