Public Engagement

The Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine has a commitment to promoting critical thinking and transforming public/citizen understanding of health research.  We believe it to be part of our job to share research findings with all stakeholders and engage with a wider audience to answer some of the questions you may have about health research.  Our aim is to help you make better informed choices when it comes to healthcare.

Any upcoming talks and events will be listed in the What’s On column and the Events page of the website.
