When: Tuesday, 17th September, all day
Where: Quebec City, Canada - TRYP Hotel Pur
In conjunction with the 21st Cochrane Colloquium
Systematic reviews and evidence-based health care face enormous challenges now and in the coming decades. Both the volume of primary research and expectations of end users continue to grow. Technological innovation is changing many knowledge intensive sectors and is set once again to transform the way evidence for health is created and used. New approaches are beginning to help prepare systematic reviews more efficiently and deliver better outputs to end users, but the journey has only just begun.
Cochrane faces enormous challenges in the coming decades as well. One component of the 5-year strategic planning exercise currently being conducted within Cochrane is around technology. How can we better leverage technology and knowledge to both help us prepare systematic reviews more efficiently but also deliver the outputs better to our end-users?
Thanks to everyone who joined us in Quebec on 17 September and contributed to a packed and productive day of presentations, discussions and demonstrations. More information to follow shortly about next steps for tech initiatives and further opportunities to contribute. In the meantime, please keep the conversations going in the discussion forums and the Google+ group.
Videos from the livestream sessions are available online.
