CEBaP at the Evidence-Based Medicine Symposium in Copenhagen


On Monday 8 April, Cochrane Denmark and the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine Odense hosted the Danish Evidence-Based Medicine network Symposium in Copenhagen.
Jorien Laermans, one of our researchers who is also one of the coordinators of Cochrane First Aid, gave a presentation on knowledge translation. She shared why disseminating evidence is important, what aspects are essential for successful dissemination, and demonstrated these aspects with examples.

The other speakers were:

  • Monica Hultcranz, who talked about Grading of Recommendations, Assessment, Development, and Evaluation (GRADE) for assessing and communicating evidence, and how GRADE has helped to shape and develop Evidence-Based Medicine;
  • Harald Herkner, who showed that many patients in clinical practice are not represented in clinical trials, and demonstrated how clinical trials are designed on a continuum ranging from an explanatory attitude to a more pragmatic attitude.

The interesting discussions were continued and new connections were formed during the subsequent dinner. 
Thank you very much to the organisers for the invitation and to all participants for the great interactions!
