Welcome to EBMLive
After close monitoring of the coronavirus pandemic and taking into consideration the well being of our delegates and speakers, the EBMLive organising committee have taken the decision to cancel the conference due to take place in Toronto 6 -8 July 2020. We are working on strategies for an alternative one day EBMLive event on July 8th and will update you as soon as possible.
The planned EBMLive 2020 will now role over to 12 – 14 July 2021 in Oxford UK where we will focus on three key points of the EBM Manifesto:
- Patient involvement & collaboration (Manifesto Theme 1)
While healthcare delivery is becoming more patient centered, the role of patients in the production and implementation of evidence is also evolving. How patients are meaningfully engaged at the outset of evidence generation is important for the long-term delivery of sustainable and affordable healthcare.
- Real-world data to improve practice (Manifesto Theme 7)
The rapid advancement in technology – particularly artificial intelligence and machine learning – along with the increasing availability of data, has led to calls for ‘Big Data’ approaches to be implemented in healthcare. What is the evidence that ‘big data’ can lead to improved outcomes? What are the risks to widespread adoption?
- Communication of evidence (Manifesto Theme 8)
The integration of evidence with patient values and preferences is critical for improving and informing the public, the media and policy makers to make better choices in the delivery and discussion of healthcare
Within these themes we will cover:
- Research leadership & mentorship (ECR & building capacity)
- Maximising research and impact
- Closing the evidence gap in family and child health
- Knowledge exchange/translation
