Managing Editor - Cochrane Tobacco Addiction Group
As Managing Editor for the Cochrane Tobacco Addiction Group, I assist in and coordinate the preparation and publication of systematic reviews that investigate the effectiveness of different ways to help people to stop smoking, or prevent them from smoking in the first place.
The Cochrane Tobacco Addiction Group (TAG) is part of Cochrane, an international not-for-profit and independent organization, dedicated to producing and disseminating up-to-date, accurate information about the effects of healthcare worldwide.
Tobacco is still the single largest cause of preventable death, killing approximately 6 million people each year. Cochrane TAG produces systematic reviews of the evidence on interventions to prevent and treat tobacco addiction, and public policy interventions for reducing smoking prevalence. We also manage a small suite of reviews on e-learning, food allergy interventions, diagnostic test accuracy, and transgender health.
I'm also a philosopher interested in the philosophy of medicine; in particular how we define and classify diseases and how this impacts on healthcare practice and medical research.
