Symposia

The Cochrane Canada Symposium is an important annual event providing an opportunity for the Cochrane community in Canada and our stakeholders to learn, network, exchange knowledge and foster new relationships and opportunities. Symposia rotate around the country, with each event hosted by a different Cochrane Canada group or site (2012 Child Health Field, Winnipeg; 2014  Cochrane Canada Centre, Ottawa; 2015 University of Calgary, Calgary; 2017 Cochrane Canada Centre, Hamilton; 2018 University of Calgary, Calgary).

A unique feature of the symposium is the two days of hands-on presymposium workshops for author training, Cochrane methods training, and utilization workshops for consumers, policymakers and health professionals. Approximately 250 people participate in the symposia to hear presentations on Cochrane methods; new developments in systematic reviews, such as diagnostic test reviews, non-RCT (Randomized Control Trial) and qualitative reviews; and knowledge transfer.

Cochrane Canada Symposium 2018

Cochrane Canada Symposium 2018, co-hosted with the Alberta SPOR SUPPORT Unit Knowledge Translation Platform, is about forging ahead into new horizons to develop fit-for-purpose evidence syntheses, carry out effective knowledge translation, and create lasting impacts on health care and health.
