CEBaP as Evidence Ambassador during World Evidence-Based Healthcare Day

24/08/21

Twenty October marks World Evidence-Based Healthcare (EBHC) Day, a global initiative raising awareness for better evidence to inform healthcare policy, practice and decision making. It is an opportunity to educate a broad audience about the importance of evidence-based healthcare and encourage debate and discussion amongst the global evidence community.

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of:

  • Developing rapid evidence-informed responses; 
  • Streamlining global efforts in producing trustworthy, pragmatic evidence; 
  • Ensuring the best available evidence is accessible, transparent and understood. 

The rapid response of the global evidence community has been important and necessary. However, it has been accompanied by a plethora of mis/disinformation which has contributed to a global ‘infodemic’, making it hard for people to find evidence-based, trustworthy guidance when they need it. Therefore, for its second edition in 2021, World EBHC Day explores the role of evidence in an infodemic, in particular promoting access to trustworthy, evidence-informed health information. 

The global evidence community will be sharing their experiences, stories and wisdom on this matter via blogs and/or hosting events. CEBaP will be an Evidence Ambassador and will publish one or more blog articles on the World EBHC Day website soon, as well as help spread the word via social and digital media.
