Cochrane Colloquium - Edinburgh 2018

Edinburgh buildings

The 2018 Cochrane Colloquium will be held in Edinburgh at the International Conference Centre in Scotland from 16-18 September 2018. It will be hosted by Cochrane UK.

Theme and content

Cochrane for all - better evidence for better health decisions

This will be a Colloquium for everyone. It will welcome newcomers to Cochrane from all parts of the world and from all backgrounds. One of the key aims is to increase the involvement of patients, carers and family members (healthcare consumers) in our work. As such, the Colloquium 2018 will be a Patients Included event that is co-designed, co-produced and co-presented by healthcare consumers and where everyone’s input is valued equally.   

The Colloquium 2018 will focus on key goals of Cochrane’s Strategy to 2020, looking through the eyes of healthcare consumers and in partnership with them:

  • Producing evidence
  • Making evidence accessible
  • Advocating for evidence
