An event for students and trainees interested in evidence-based health care

We're 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:
