The Global Evidence Summit will be the first time that Cochrane, The Campbell Collaboration, Guidelines-International Network, International Society for Evidence-based Health Care, and Joanna Briggs Institute have joined forces to create the premiere event in evidence-based policy.
Cochrane is a global independent network of researchers, professionals, patients, carers and people interested in health. We respond to the challenge of making the vast amounts of best available evidence generated through research useful for informing decisions about health. Cochrane is a not-for-profit organization with collaborators from more than 120 countries working together to produce credible, accessible health information that is free from commercial sponsorship and other conflicts of interest.
The Campbell Collaboration is a voluntary, non-profit, international research network. We produce and disseminate systematic reviews of the effects of interventions in the social and behavioural sciences. Our mission is to enhance the evidence basis so that policymakers, practitioners, and service recipients are better equipped to make informed decisions. This can improve people’s lives, by improving the quality of public and private services.
The mission of the Guidelines International Network (G-I-N) is to lead, strengthen and support collaboration in guideline development, adaptation and implementation. As a major player on the global healthcare quality stage, G-I-N facilitates networking, promotes excellence and helps our members create high quality clinical practice guidelines that foster safe and effective patient care.
The Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) is the international not-for-profit, research and development centre within the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Adelaide, South Australia. The Institute collaborates internationally with over 70 entities across the world. The Institute and its collaborating entities promote and support the synthesis, transfer and utilization of evidence through identifying feasible, appropriate, meaningful and effective healthcare practices to assist in the improvement of healthcare outcomes globally.
The mission of the International Society for Evidence-Based Health Care is to develop, and encourage research in, the appropriate usage of evidence in health care decision making and to promote and provide professional and public education in the field.
