Description

Cochrane Canada Symposium 2018

Cochrane Canada will resume its annual symposia series on June 6 and 7, 2018, in Calgary, Alberta. Located in southwestern Alberta - approximately 80 km from the foothills of the Canadian Rockies - Calgary is Canada's third largest municipality. Home to more than 1.2 million people, the city boasts an endless list of popular tourist destinations, including Calgary Zoo, Calgary Tower, Canada's Sports Hall of Fame and Glenbow Museum.

Cochrane Canada Symposium 2018, co-hosted with the Alberta SPOR SUPPORT Unit Knowledge Translation Platform, is about forging ahead into new horizons to develop fit-for-purpose evidence syntheses, carry out effective knowledge translation, and create lasting impacts on health care and health. Our collaborative team of volunteers – many of whom are world leaders in their respective fields – gather, synthesize, publish and support the use of the best available evidence in the optimal format for those who need it most – a mission we have championed for more than two decades.

Cochrane evidence plays a key role in health decision making, from the patient trying to live well with their health conditions and the practitioner helping a patient make an informed choice about their care, to the policymaker planning healthcare services and the international agency leader addressing a humanitarian crisis.

Addressing stakeholder needs has led Cochrane to expand its comprehensive and innovative suite of products, which now includes living systematic reviews, rapid reviews, complex reviews, evidence summaries and review-derived patient materials. Moreover, Cochrane remains at the forefront of the development of new methods and training in critical appraisal and risk of bias, while harnessing technological advances to build a sustainable infrastructure for knowledge translation.

So, join us at Cochrane Canada Symposium 2018 as we offer consumers, practitioners, policymakers and managers, researchers and research funders the ideal forum to forge strong, meaningful partnerships and to discuss how to:

  • empower and engage patients with review-derived patient materials;
  • support health practitioners in efficiently and effectively using reviews and guidelines;
  • prepare policymakers and managers for a world of living reviews and guidelines; and
  • inspire the next generation of Cochrane reviewers and authors.
