Finding Evidence:Informing Practice


Do you have a practice issue you would like to resolve? or have you ever wondered if there might be a better way of doing things? If you work within health, social care or public health the Finding Evidence: Informing Practice workshop taking place in July will be of interest.

This full day interactive workshop has been designed for NHS and local authority health care, social care and public health practitioners who are at the beginning stages of planning a search for evidence that will help to inform their practice. The workshop will cover the basics of getting started and is aimed at beginners, those who are new to the process and those needing a refresher on the basics.
Hands-on and practical, the workshop will support you to define your question and design and implement an evidence search.  

Facilitators for the workshop are Professor Rumona Dickson, is a leading expert in evidence synthesis for health care with over 20 years of experience of supporting practitioners to review evidence in order to inform care delivery. Michelle Maden has extensive expertise in designing and undertaking literature searches for systematic reviews and has co-authored several published systematic reviews and Eleanor Kotas is an expert in literature searching.
