Innovative changes are afoot in the world of evidence synthesis. These changes are being prompted by a raft of challenges in the production and discovery of evidence. Health librarians have a key role to play in ensuring the integrity of systematic reviews by developing, testing, and validating rigorous search strategies for these reviews. As Cochrane is the world’s largest producer of systematic reviews, health information professionals need to stay abreast of the significant changes unfolding there. Steve McDonald, co-director of the Australasian Cochrane Centre, spoke at the 12th Health Libraries Inc conference to address the rapidly shifting state of play in the evidence ecosystem.
