EBMLive 2020 - Patient Application Form
EBMLive 2020 is a collaboration between The BMJ and the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine which aims to make evidence relevant and replicable for policy, patients and professionals in healthcare. EBMLive 2020 will be hosted in Toronto, Canada, partnering with the Hospital for Sick Children and the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the University of Toronto.
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 2020 will focus on using real-world data to improve practice, patient involvement & collaboration; and communication of evidence for better health. Day 2 of EBMLive will focus on how we can better involve and partner with patients and the public when creating and using evidence in healthcare.
To help make this conference productive and fully interactive we are keen to have patients presenting, co-presenting and actively participating at all of the main conference sessions and in the workshops. We would like to invite you to join us in Toronto to contribute to this conversation. As part of this commitment, we will be offering a number of free places at EBMLive for patients, carers and/or family members to attend and contribute.
