Cochrane-Wikipedia Project: Cochrane Pain, Palliative, and Supportive Care
We are seeking one or two volunteers to help improve evidence shared on Wikipedia related to headache and migraines. This project is a collaboration with the Cochrane Pain, Palliative, and Supportive Care Review Group (PaPaS) and the Musculoskeletal, Oral, Skin and Sensory Network Support Fellow.
The volunteer(s) would be asked to complete some self-led Wikipedia training exercises and then add paraphrased evidence (where appropriate) to Wikipedia from a list of Cochrane Reviews selected by the PaPaS Review Group. If you are interested in volunteering for this opportunity, please reach out.
Deadline: Candidate(s) will be chosen after October 1, 2020. They will then have two months to complete the training and improve the Wikipedia articles.
As part of the Cochrane-Wikipedia Project, we can offer 200 membership points for completing this task.
