1) Cochrane’s Methods Symposium on public health evidence synthesis and complex interventions
Over 250 people joined us for session 1 to discuss evidence synthesis in public health, with talks on the importance of preparing and planning and using different types of evidence, such as non-randomised studies of interventions, qualitative evidence, modelling studies and evidence maps for equity considerations. You can catch up on these talks before session 2 (18 October), which includes talks on describing complex interventions, using different types of evidence to inform guideline development, and communicating evidence to decision makers and end users. Session 1 recordings and session 2 registration available here. Share on social media that you’re going using #CochraneMethodsSymp!
2) Launching a brand-new, qualitative evidence synthesis webinar series
The Qualitative and Implementation Methods Group and Cochrane Training are launching an eight-part Learning Live webinar series, which starts on 28 October with an introduction to qualitative research and qualitative evidence synthesis. Full details and how to register are here.
