This year’s Cochrane Colloquium is being held in Quebec City, Canada, situated on the shores of the St. Lawrence river, one of the largest rivers of the world. Founded in 1608, this old city is rich in history and an apt home for this year’s Colloquium: Better knowledge for better health – Un meilleur savoir pour une meilleure santé.
Today was all about registration and Cochrane business meetings, as well as the traditional newcomers’ session. We are looking forward to the welcome reception to be held at the magnificant Musée de la Civilisation.
Tomorrow kicks off with the opening ceremony and the first plenary: Better knowledge for better heath: effectiveness and Efficiency. the learning objectives for this plenary are:
1. Recognize the role of evidence to support health care decision-making.
2. Acquire an understanding of the history of The Cochrane Collaboration
and its contribution to evidence-based decisions in health care.
3. Identify future opportunities for The Cochrane Collaboration to support
evidence informed health care and health systems.
