EBMLive 2020 is coming to Toronto for the first time!

The challenges facing the evidence-based medicine (EBM) movement are well documented. Patients are being let down by serious flaws in the creation, dissemination, and implementation of medical research. Too many research studies are poorly designed or executed. Too much of the resulting research evidence is withheld or disseminated only piecemeal. As the volume of clinical research activity has grown, the quality of evidence has often worsened, which has compromised medicine’s ability to provide affordable, effective, high-value care for patients.
 
EBMLive is an annual conference hosted by Oxford University. It is designed to encourage working groups to identify, take forward and implement solutions for better evidence and healthcare. This three-day conference focuses on three core themes outlined in the EBM Manifesto, an open invitation for others to contribute to and join a movement towards better evidence by providing a roadmap for how to achieve the listed priorities and to share the lessons from achievements already made. 

  • Patient Involvement and Collaboration
