2015 JBI International Methodology Symposium | 3-4 September 2015 | Crowne Plaza Adelaide


A must for the evidence-based health care enthusiast and methodologist!

Abstracts and Registrations are now open for our inaugural JBI International Methodology Symposium 2015 which will focus on presenting and discussing the unique approaches developed by JBI and its Collaboration to evidence synthesis and evidence implementation.

The Symposium will consist of plenary sessions by JBI Methodology Groups along with concurrent free paper sessions for JBI/JBC students and other stakeholders to present work that has utilized the JBI approach to either evidence synthesis or evidence implementation. Additional research and results might be presented via poster sessions.

Prior to the symposium we will hold two free afternoon workshops where we will present new and future developments for JBI’s two premier bespoke software suites SUMARI (System for the Unified Management, Assessment and Review of Information) and PACES (Practical Application of Clinical Evidence System).

We look forward to seeing you in Adelaide in September this year as we continue to develop unique approaches to Methodology and meet with friends old and new from across the globe.
