OBJECTIVES: We aimed to develop and pilot a process for joint working between Cochrane Review Groups (specialist-area groups responsible for producing Cochrane reviews) and Cochrane Fields (broad-spectrum interest groups), for identifying high priority review topics and enhancing quality and dissemination of priority reviews. STUDY DESIGN AND SETTING: We developed and piloted a framework for collaboration between a Cochrane Review Group (specializing in musculoskeletal injuries) and a Cochrane Field (focusing on health care of older people) for identifying, delivering, and disseminating priority Cochrane intervention reviews using hip fracture rehabilitation as an exemplar. The processes adopted included consultation of members of both the entities, mapping of trials from the Review Group's Specialized Register, jointly establishing criteria for topic prioritization, identification of researchers, and facilitating provision of expert peer review from the field. RESULTS: A framework for effective collaboration between a Cochrane Review Group and Cochrane Field for identifying and delivering priority Cochrane Reviews was devised and piloted. Additionally, two new Cochrane reviews, preceded by protocols, were published. CONCLUSION: The project demonstrated the feasibility and potential benefits of a structured collaboration between a Cochrane Review Group and a Cochrane Field for the identification and production of Cochrane reviews on priority topics.
