Making Evidence Relevant and Replicable for Policy, Patients and Professionals in Healthcare

We can all agree there is a need for better evidence to inform healthcare. Yet commercial and academic conflicts often produce evidence that is not fit for purpose; evidence that does not inform decision making, evidence that introduces more harm than good. This has to change – but how, by whom, and when?

Equip yourself with the necessary skills to Identify, Develop, Enhance and Add capacity for better use of evidence by attending EBMLive 2019 in Oxford, UK, 15-17th July 2019.


Identify and fix the problems with research evidence

Redefine the E in EBM with Tom Jefferson, join the conversation in improving the reporting of harms with Marie Lindquist of the Uppsala Monitoring Centre, develop a conflict of interest statement with Margaret McCartney and Carl Heneghan and learn from BMJ Editors, about what Journals should do to reduce questionable research practices and bias in research and practice.

Develop better research evidence

Come and join patient campaigners, Kath Sansom and Marie Lyon to better understand how to make research evidence relevant, replicable and accessible to end users.
