Cochrane Public Health Group Author Forum
22nd April 2014 14:00 to 16:30
Conducting systematic reviews can be a lonesome and difficult business, and the CPHG are convening an author forum as an opportunity for CPHG authors to meet together and share experiences. The aims of the forum are: to facilitate informal learning through sharing of ideas and experiences; to act as point of contact with CPHG; and to develop local informal support networks. The specific content and topics covered in the forum will be informed by attendees. An overview of developments in the CPHG will be presented but the focus of this afternoon forum will be for authors to meet each other and for informal learning. We very much hope this event will be useful to CPHG authors and anyone involved in preparing systematic reviews of topics relevant to public health, and tackling difficult issues of incorporating non-randomised studies, narrative synthesis, etc..
The forum will be held in Manchester (venue to be confirmed) in the afternoon before the UK Cochrane Annual Symposium starts. Places are limited and registration is essential (see link below). There is no charge for this event but participants will have to pay any travel or accommodation costs incurred.
