Your Project Proposal

You'll be writing your research project proposal, so it's helpful to read a few Cochrane Reviews and Cochrane Protocols from The Cochrane Library. Cochrane Reviews are systematic reviews, the gold standard in evidence-based health care. Hopefully you'll be inspired as you start to think about your research project, write your project proposal, and later conduct your research and complete your thesis.
