Call for abstracts for Cochrane Colloquium Edinburgh 2018 closes midnight 5 March

The opportunity to present workshops, special sessions, oral presentations and posters is now open, as of 5 January 2018. This is your chance to be part of the 25th annual Cochrane Colloquium. The theme of the event is ‘Cochrane for all – better evidence for better health decisions’ and we look forward to receiving submissions on the sub-themes of ‘producing evidence’, ‘making evidence accessible’ and ‘advocating for evidence’.

The Colloquium will be held in Edinburgh at the International Conference Centre in Scotland from 16-18 September 2018. It will hosted by Cochrane UK and is expected to attract up to 1200 delegates.

The Colloquium will be a Patients Included event. One of the key aims of the event is to increase the involvement of patients, carers and family members (healthcare consumers) in Cochrane’s work. As such, we ask that all abstracts consider their impact on, and relevance to, patients and other healthcare consumers. We particularly welcome abstracts that are co-designed, co-produced and/or co-presented with patients or other healthcare consumers.

The deadline for submissions is  Monday 5 March 2018 at midnight (UTC).
