Cochrane Canada Symposium 2018 - Consumer Stipends

Consumer Stipends

Consumers play a vital role in the work Cochrane Canada produces. Their insight is invaluable, and their commitment to working together to improve health decision-making is truly appreciated. We invite our consumer partners to join us at this year's Symposium scheduled for 6-7 June in Calgary, Alberta. 

Why should patients/consumers attend our symposium?

  • Meet other patients interested in learning about research on ‘what works’ in healthcare
  • Help set priorities for what healthcare questions and issues Cochrane will explore
  • Participate in hands-on workshops and in-depth plenary and education sessions
  • Find out how you can contribute your valuable perspective on Cochrane-related activities
  • Provide input on how Cochrane Canada can improve its impact on health decision-making
