EBMLive 4 Patients

Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) is the use patient perspectives and preferences, combined with the best available scientific knowledge and healthcare professionals knowledge, to improve health. The BMJ and Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine are, with others, driving a movement in EBM to find better ways to produce, synthesise, evaluate, disseminate, and use evidence to improve people’s health and well being. We believe that this is a movement in which input from patients and the public is essential.

EBMLive focuses on using real-world data to improve practice, patient involvement & collaboration; and communication of evidence for better health.  Our aim is to better involve and partner with patients and the public when creating and using evidence in healthcare.

To help make EBMLive events  productive and fully interactive we are keen to have patients involved, co-presenting and actively participating at all main conference sessions and in the workshops.
As part of this commitment, we will be offering a number of free places to the next EBMLive for patients, carers and/or family members to attend and contribute.

Applications will open once a date for the next event is secured. Please note, these places cover the cost of registration only. Unfortunately we are unable to cover any travel or accommodation expenses. If you have any questions please contact Emma Cartwright (
