Issue 2 | Winter 2015

Season's Greetings from Cochrane Vascular to all our members.  Ease your way through this busy time by looking out for our reviews featured in this year's #EvidentlyAdvent calendar - every day from the 16th of December.  
Our update Clinically-indicated replacement versus routine replacement of peripheral venous catheters has generated a lot of interest; including being featured in an Evidently Cochrane blog and inspiring a @WeNurses tweetchat. See here for a fascinating summary of these by Sarah Chapman, the Cochrane UK Knowledge Broker.
Task Exchange is a platform that aims to connect people who need help with their Cochrane reviews to those who have the time and expertise to help.  Head to Task Exchange, add your profile, post a task or see what tasks are available.
Covidence is an online systematic review production platform, which is now recommended by Cochrane as part of its author support toolkit.  It can be used to manage the screening process, assess risk of bias and extract data. Please see here for more details.
See below for details of the four reviews, eight updates and one protocol we have published since the summer newsletter. Thank you for all the hard work by authors, editors and referees who have made this possible and to all those currently writing.
