Programme Domains

Programme Domains (plenary and special sessions)

  1. Sustainable development agenda: how can leading organisations in EBHC/Education/Social welfare partner and support the delivery of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals in relation to evidence generation, synthesis and implementation, increasing the value of research and reducing research waste. This might include educational strategies and maximising technological advances.
  1. Research integrity making evidence accessible: including but not limited to the current publishing model, moving to open science, improving quality of peer review (or other approaches); challenges of predatory publishing.

  2. Power of synergy in evidence synthesis & synthesis products: philosophy of Global Evidence Summit is the collaboration of global leaders in evidence-based policy and practice. Sharing knowledge in methodological innovation and transfer across policy areas. This is not just content (network meta-analysis, clinical study reports) but also the applicability and adaptation of synthesis methods.

  3. Evidence translation & implementation: knowledge translation, dissemination and implementation strategies including but not limited to guideline development, audit and feedback, leadership and stakeholder engagement strategies. The summit will explore a broad remit of themes and their dependencies, for example, the relationship between the environment (natural and social) and its effects on health, social welfare and wellbeing. 

  4. Advocating for greater evidence communication & use of evidence: including but not limited to systems integration, linked to capacity-building in evidence-synthesis and informing/educating the work of evidence-users; supporting formal educational programmes that led to certification; advocating for the use of evidence in decision making; and building a ‘climate’ for evidence to increase the use of evidence in policy and practice.

  5. From global evidence to local impact: the importance of contextualising evidence, measuring the impact and change evidence has; effective evaluation frameworks measuring impact in ‘improving lives’ through change in practice/outcomes research and development.

Other themes, special themes and abstracts 

The Global Evidence Summit extends an open invitation to contribute across a spectrum of fields, welcoming submissions that engage with the Programme Domains as well as crossing the domains of health and social sectors. Our inclusive approach encourages participation from all areas within the spheres of Campbell, Cochrane, JBI, GIN, all programme partners and other fields of evidence synthesis and guidance development.

We actively seek submissions that tackle global challenges head-on, spotlighting issues of importance. This includes a dedicated focus on evidence synthesis, methodologies, and the impactful use of evidence to inform decisions. As we advocate for a holistic perspective, we welcome submissions that transcend traditional boundaries, addressing global issues even if they might not be intrinsically linked to health. Our goal is to stimulate discourse that breaks molds and encourages innovative solutions to urgent problems.

Your contributions, whether they align with the core Programme Domains or branch out to new horizons, will enrich the discourse at the summit, advancing evidence-based practice and shaping a brighter future for all.
