Colloquium schedule sign-up and app are now launched

Welcome to Edinburgh for the 25th Cochrane Colloquium, which is being held at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre in Scotland, from 16th to 18th September 2018.

Cochrane UK is delighted to be hosting this Colloquium, the theme of which is  ‘Cochrane for all – better evidence for better health decisions’.  This is to emphasize that Cochrane welcomes everyone and recognizes that everything Cochrane does is about and for patients and other health consumers.  The Colloquium in 2018 is an event that is co-designed, co-produced and co-presented with healthcare consumers; an event where everyone’s input is valued equally.

We have been asked about this particular focus. We believe passionately that we all share the same goal: better health for patients, healthcare consumers and the world at large.

Sign-up for the Colloquium schedule

Sign-up is now available for the full Colloquium schedule. Login to your Colloquium account, and sign-up for the sessions you want to attend.
