The Effective Practice and Organisation of Care (EPOC) Group is a Cochrane Review Group. Cochrane is an international network of more than 28,000 dedicated people from over 100 countries, working together to help healthcare providers, policy-makers, patients, their advocates and carers, make well-informed decisions about health care, by preparing, updating, and promoting the accessibility of Cochrane Reviews.

The scope of the Cochrane EPOC group is to undertake systematic reviews of educational, behavioural, financial, regulatory and organisational interventions designed to improve health professional practice and the organisation of health care services.

Our editorial base is located in Oxford at the Nuffield Department for Population Health, part of the University of Oxford

Our reviews are published in the Cochrane Library.

EPOC also has satellite editorial offices in Norway and Australia.
