It’s the third and final day of the Cochrane Colloquium.

In today’s first keynote session we’ll be thinking about how why and when we partner with patients, identifying some of the challenges of working together as well as exploring the value and impact of partnerships for individuals, communities and organisations.

Jennifer Johannesen will be taking a critical look and patient and public involvement from her perspective as a carer and advocate.

Mark Taylor, Head of Impact at the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and multiple sclerosis patient, will explore the importance of assessing research impact in terms of patient benefit.

Ruth Elwood Martin & Mo Korchinski will discuss their work engaging women in Canadian prisons in participatory health research to address concerns raised by the women themselves.

Later we’ll hear from Gregor Smith, Scotland’s Deputy Chief Medical Officer, on the need for ‘realistic medicine’ and Victor Montori, from the Mayo Clinic, who’ll argue for the careful and kind application of evidence.

To wrap up, David Tovey, Cochrane’s Editor in Chief, will reflect on how Cochrane can respond to challenges it faces.

It’s day two of the Cochrane Colloquium, taking place in Edinburgh.

Qualitative research gathers and analyses people’s perspectives and experiences of health and care. Today's keynote speakers will be highlighting the importance of such research in informing the design & delivery of effective health services globally.

Dalila Martínez will discuss how her experiences as a multi-drug resistant tuberculous patient led her to become a qualitative researcher.

Sue Ziebland of the University of Oxford will discuss global endeavours to understand and learn from patients’ experiences for experience-based health information, clinical education and service improvements.

Meanwhile, Dorothy Oluoch will describe what she and her team at the KEMRI-Wellcome Trust have learned from the lived experiences of mothers of preterm babies in Kenya.

Plus, there are many more sessions, talks and workshops covering a spectrum of issues and concepts within evidence-based health care; from priority setting to communicating, understanding and using evidence and much more.

Today is the first day of the 25th annual Cochrane Colloquium, taking place in Edinburgh.

This Colloquium is unique in being the first accredited ‘Patients Included’ Colloquium, putting patient & consumer engagement at its heart.

At Cochrane’s core are two key things: patients and data. In today’s keynote talks, we’ll be looking at some of the challenges for Cochrane provided by the world of big data and the realities of health care in the real world.

Christine Borgman from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) will explore challenges around data sharing and reuse and the implications of these for the production of Cochrane Reviews.

Meanwhile, Glasgow-based GP and former BMJ columnist Margaret McCartney will be asking ‘why is evidence in real life so hard?”

Plus, there are many more sessions, talks and workshops. These will cover a spectrum of issues and concepts within evidence-based health care; from patient involvement and shared-decision-making to information retrieval, and much more.
