We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to Oxford for our annual Symposium 2019, which is a joint Cochrane UK and Cochrane Ireland event.
This Symposium is an opportunity for us to come together as a Cochrane community to share knowledge and creative ideas for producing and sharing best evidence; to learn from each other and to improve our skills to ensure that our work is of high quality.
