1st Evidence-Based Research Conference: Increasing the Value of Research
16th-17th November 2020
The 1st Evidence-Based Research (EBR) Conference looked at making research ethical, relevant and worthwhile through the use of systematic reviews to decrease research waste and increase research value.
Our conference theme “Increasing the Value of Research” reflected the ambition to ensure that all new studies address research questions that matter, in a valid, efficient and accessible manner. One key step towards this goal is to start using prior research in a systematic and transparent way to justify and design new studies. This approach will help ensure that ethical approval, funding and publication is reserved only for necessary studies – those based on knowledge gaps identified through syntheses of earlier trials – and relevant studies – those justified by obtaining the perspective of end-user groups directly affected by the new study.
The Conference was aimed not only at researchers from all disciplines but at everyone keen to share their knowledge and experience relevant to an EBR approach.
