EBMLive 2019 Day 1

Increase the systematic use of existing evidence

Chairs: Kamal R. Mahtani and Tom Jefferson

Systematic reviews play a vital role in supporting healthcare decision making as well as reducing research waste.  This view is increasingly being recognised by those that benefit from the outputs of this type of research. However, despite all these opportunities, there are systemic failings with the publishing, reporting, and interpretation of much of the evidence base, which undermines the findings of systematic reviews. Furthermore, complex clinical and policy questions often require the use of multiple data sources, viewed through different lenses and incorporating more advanced evidence synthesis methodology.

At EBMLive 2019, we will review some of the benefits, challenges and future perspectives to support the increased and systematic use of existing evidence. Day 1 of the programme will include talks from global leaders in the field, including Andrea Tricco, Gerald Gartlehner and Ruth Garside.

Day 1 will also include several workshops including one led by Jon Brassey, Director of the Trip Database. Jon will provide the audience with his perspectives on finding better evidence in the digital world. Other workshops include “Stakeholder Engagement in Systematic Reviews”; “Refining the E in EBM: developing better evidence” and “Improving the Reporting and Assessment of Harms”.

The event will be essential to anyone interested in ensuring evidence users have systematic access to the best available evidence.
