E-drug: Cochrane Collaboration Colloquium
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

25-29 October 2000 
Cape Town, South Africa 

EVIDENCE FOR ACTION

The Cochrane Collaboration invites all health care providers, policy 
makers, educators, consumers, researchers and the health care indus-
try to its eighth international colloquium.

Interactive sessions will focus on challenges that are unfolding as 
the Cochrane Collaboration pursues its goal of preparing, updating 
and disseminating systematic reviews of the effects of health care 
interventions. The implications of evidence from Cochrane reviews for 
health care practice, policy and research will also be considered. 
Case studies will provide a backdrop for discussions and priority 
topics will include Tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, Malaria, Pregnancy and 
Childbirth, Tobacco Addiction and Heart Disease. Training in the 
methods of systematic review and meta-analysis will be provided at 
both beginner and advanced levels.
