Cochrane Nursing Care Field (CNCF)
The Cochrane Nursing Care Field (CNCF) is one of 16 fields within the Cochrane Collaboration, managed exclusively by JBI. Mission of the CNCF is to improve health outcomes by providing an easily accessible evidence base for nurses and related healthcare professionals who are involved in delivering, leading or researching nursing care.
The CNCF produces ‘Cochrane Corner’ columns (summaries of recent nursing-care-relevant Cochrane Reviews) that are regularly published in the CNCF's
numerous international collaborating nursing-care-related journals. These summaries allow evidence to reach a wider group of nurses and related healthcare
agencies globally, enabling busy healthcare professionals direct access to highly relevant outcomes that are easy to interpret and implement into their daily practice.
The columns are developed by nursing professionals with nursing and frontline care in mind, with direct reference to the reviews’ implication and relevance for nursing practice.
Assoc. Prof. Craig Lockwood is the Field Director and Alex Mignone is the Field Coordinator.
