The multimodality methods group seeks to inform and guide the Cochrane systematic review community in combining multiple types of evidence, displayed in a variety of different forms and using multiple dissemination channels to make reviews more comprehensive and inclusive. We would like to extend the range of formats used in the production and dissemination of reviews. This means including different forms of evidence (numerical, narrative and sensory data), vary with form in presenting insights or using different formats to communicate with the public, this may be inclusive of creative methods such as performance and art. We initiate this methods group based on our collective interest in the value of information carriers beyond the printed page that represent evidence and what they might contribute to the inclusivity agenda from Cochrane. It is our aim to respond to information and presentation needs from different populations currently involved or who might become involved in Cochrane. We invite you to hop on board!
