- Role of consumers is to ensure that work undertaken by the Cochrane groups have a consumer perspective which brings knowledge and recognition of consumer issues and concerns to the Cochrane process in order that information, research and service delivery result in improved outcomes for women and men.
- Ensure that consumer perspectives in the Cochrane reviews are known about and influence future practice through effective and known about dissemination processes.
- Ensure that the consumer perspective input into the Cochrane process is informed, is systematic and builds on the work developed and promoted by the Cochrane Consumer Network.
Conflict of interest
- General information and guidelines are described in http://community.cochrane.org/editorial-and-publishing-policy-resource/conflicts-interest-and-cochrane-reviews.
- The Fertility Regulation Group is an independent group. None of the sponsors have a direct or indirect influence of the editorial activities.
- The conflict of interest of the editorial board members: none.
- The collaborative work up of reviewers, referees and members of the editorial board and the 'comments and criticism' section of reviews may prevent conflict of interest. Any forwarded conflict of interest will be circulated among all members of the editorial board. Decision of the Board will be taken by majority. If no majority will be reached, the Cochrane Centre will be requested for assistance.
