EBMLive 2020 will be hosted outside of the UK for the first time, partnering with the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) and the Department of Family and Community Medicine (DFCM) at the University of Toronto. SickKids is Canada’s most research-intensive hospital and one of the largest centres in the world dedicated to improving children’s health, while the DFCM is recognized internationally for its clinical, educational and research excellence, and is one of the world’s largest departments of academic family medicine/general practice. Both are embedded within the University of Toronto, Canada’s leading health research university, and one of the top 5 in the world. Toronto is Canada’s largest city, the fourth largest in North America, and home to a diverse population of more than 3 million people.

Evidence-based medicine (EBM) seems to lack explicit considerations of the properties of the phenomena that we want evidence about.
