Venue: Edinburgh International Convention Centre.
Cochrane UK are hosting a day of interactive workshops as well as inspirational talks from renowned speakers for trainees (of any speciality) and students (of any discipline) interested in evidence-based health care. The aim is to enthuse, entertain and inform trainees and students about key issues and challenges in the production and application of evidence.
The theme of the event is ‘Cochrane for all – better evidence for better health decisions’. Attendees will learn more about the work of Cochrane and be challenged to think critically about key issues in the world of evidence-based health care, such as shared-decision making, patient and carer involvement in research, and how to apply evidence in everyday clinical practice.
Confirmed speakers include:
- Jennifer Johannesen - The trouble with Patient and public involvement (PPI) in research (followed by a discussion with Iain Chalmers)
- Margaret McCartney - 'Everyday annoyances: why is evidence in real life so hard?'
- Christine Borgman with Irene Pasquetto - How and why do scientists reuse others’ data to produce new knowledge? Background, Foreground, and Beyond.
- Caroline Whitworth - How can you deliver Person-centred care and evidence-based medicine together in clinical practice?
- Anna Noel-Storr - Getting involved with Cochrane.
Attendees will receive a certificate of attendance. Lunch and refreshments will be provided and there will be a networking event in a local pub following on from the event.
