Dr. Philipp Dahm of Cochrane Urology
In a day and age when it seems like advances in health care are moving faster than the average person can keep up, it is comforting to know that there are experts and resources dedicated to the fundamental betterment of health care through systematic reviews and protocols.
The Cochrane Collaboration is a global independent network of researchers, professionals, patients, caregivers, and people interested in health. These collaborators work together to produce credible, accessible health information that is free from commercial sponsorship and other conflicts of interest. In short, if there’s an important health care decision to be made, you want someone affiliated with the Cochrane Collaboration to have studied, reviewed and assessed that decision. The work done by the Cochrane Collaboration is recognized as representing an international gold standard for high quality, trusted information.
When deciding upon the benefactors of the funds raised by the Drive for Men’s Health, the D4MH team wanted to fund the latest research and development of best practices in urology care. Dr. Philipp Dahm, the Coordinating Editor of Cochrane Urology, is working with an international team of researchers to study and bring to the foreground the very best in urologic care. If there’s an issue related specifically to the health of men, Dr. Dahm and his team at Cochrane Urology have worked meticulously to find the evidence necessary to make informed decisions, resulting in better overall health.
Each year, funds raised by the Drive for Men’s Health are donated to Cochrane Urology to drive advances in men’s health. The entire team behind the Drive for Men’s Health is proud to play a role in finding a better tomorrow for patients. To learn more about Cochrane Urology, visit http://urology.cochrane.org/.
