Evidence Live takes place in Oxford, UK, this June. The conference is a unique event attracting both big players and early career researchers in the field of Evidence Based Medicine. It’s a warm and welcoming environment in which to exchange ideas and experiences, and the topics of Real-World Evidence and routinely collected health data feature heavily in this year’s programme. If you’re lucky enough to be attending this year’s conference, take a look at our helpful list of must-attend talks at this year’s conference – if not, make sure you keep an eye out for these topics on Twitter by following @IgniteData and taking a look through tweets at #EvidenceLive.
Routinely collected health data (RCD) for randomised controlled trials (RCT)
Wednesday 21st June 2017, 9.30am
This interactive workshop invites data scientists, clinical researchers, trial managers, regulators and other interested stakeholders. Empirical research on the validity and reliability of RCD in general and specifically for trial recruitment and follow-up will be presented and discussed. This workshop guarantees lively discussion from a broad range of stakeholders involved with routinely collected health data – covering both the promises, opportunities and challenges that we may encounter along the way.
How do we use routinely collected data for genuine patient benefit?
Wednesday 21st June 2017, 1.30pm
This talk given by Amitava Banerjee is definitely one to watch. Banerjee is a prominent and widely published doctor and senior clinical lecturer at UCL. His research concerning global health and access to medicine has relevance to UK clinical practice, and this talk promises a unique insight into the use of routinely collected clinical data for public health benefit covering both population-level (‘big data’) and individual-level (‘small data’) considerations.
