As we celebrate 30 years since the founding of the Cochrane Collaboration, Karla Soares-Weiser and Jimmy Volmink will discuss with some of the founders of the Collaboration what motivated them and others who co-founded the organization. Karla and Jimmy will be joined by Iain Chalmers, Muir Gray and Jini Hetherington among others in this look back at the formation of the Collaboration in 1993. Answers to a range of questions will explore the collaborative ethos that inspired the creation of a global network to prepare and maintain systematic reviews of research to inform decisions in health care.
Target audience: Anyone interested in starting a revolution is welcome
Format: An informal panel conversation
