Workshop: New frontiers for evaluating evidence in medicine

Start: Jun 20, 2016 9:30:00 AM
End: Jun 20, 2016 5:30:00 PM

Evidence-based medicine has transformed the way in which statistical evidence is used in medicine. These methods are now standard practice, routinely used by medical researchers and health policy makers to assess evidence for the effectiveness of treatments and health policies. The EBM+ consortium (http://ebmplus.org) aims to further develop these concepts and methods. Specifically, we think that an emphasis on clinical trials as the primary source of evidence in EBM leads to an undue downgrading of alternative, potentially valuable, sources of evidence. Our goal is therefore to seek ways of integrating the results of randomized controlled trials with these other sources of evidence in a way that is useful to medical practitioners, epidemiologists, and other health officers.
