The Cochrane in Ireland conference brings together healthcare professionals and academics to examine current issues in evidence-based practice. Those in practice will find ways to access and use evidence. Those interested in or already conducting systematic reviews will learn about developments. Everyone will have plenty of opportunity to network with others interested in evidence-based practice. Those who will benefit from attending include healthcare professionals interested in using evidence-based practice to improve clinical practice, in developing healthcare policy, or in contributing to systematic reviews.
