Cochrane Chile is delighted to be hosting the upcoming 2019 Colloquium. It will be a great opportunity to meet and network with Cochrane contributors and users globally and to learn more about the wide usage of Cochrane evidence in decision-making at all levels.
The Colloquium will take place from 22-25 October 2019 at CasaPiedra in the vibrant city of Santiago, Chile.
Cochrane is an inclusive organization, and all are welcome to participate and contribute. But true inclusion means the participation of diverse audiences with diverse evidence needs for diverse health decisions. The theme of the 2019 Colloquium is ‘Embracing Diversity’ and the aims are:
- To make Cochrane more relevant to different audiences making health decisions in varied settings
- To build new partnerships and relationships, especially with difficult-to-reach audiences
- To grow the global Cochrane community
- To advance relevant methodological discussions to make Cochrane reviews more relevant
The 2019 Cochrane Colloquium seeks to look at diversity as an advantage rather than a disadvantage by examining linguistic, stakeholder, and methodological diversity, among other perspectives. Keynote/Plenary Sessions will address the Embracing Diversity theme.
In addition to the programme, there is no better place to experience diversity than in Chile. In 2018, Chile was recognized as the best country to visit by the prestigious Lonely Planet travel guide. This long and narrow strip of land, isolated from the rest of the world by the soaring Andes to the east, and the vast pacific ocean to the west, acts as a catalogue of natural wonders, ranging from the unearthly scenery of the world’s driest desert in the north, to the world’s largest continental ice fields in the south. In between, countless unforgettable locations, including top-of-the-list wine growing regions, the clearest skies in the world, the impenetrable wilderness of Patagonia and the enigmatic Easter island, just to name a few. Chile is nature on a colossal scale, and travel is safe and easy.
