Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence, and Impact

Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence, and Impact Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence, and Impact (HEI) at McMaster University - the birthplace of Evidence-Based Medicine.
(18)

In the same year that McMaster launched its radically different medical school, a small group of thoughtful, committed individuals came together to create another innovation for McMaster – the first clinical epidemiology department in Canada. HEI conducts world-leading research into the nature, prevention and management of health care problems. HEI is where evidence-based medicine got its start, and where modern-day clinical epidemiology came into its own.

Long-distance caregiving: How to fulfil your role as a caregiver when you are far away

About 12% of caregivers provide support to a family member who lives at least one hour away by car.

If you live an hour or more away from a loved one you care for, you are a long-distance caregiver. Long-distance caregivers provide the same types of support as caregivers living nearby, but geographic separation may exacerbate the stress they experience.

As a result of the continued spread and impact of the COVID-19, we wanted to update you with news and information regarding Cochrane’s 27th annual Colloquium in Toronto, 4-7th October, 2020.
https://buff.ly/2vGGW3O
We know that many members of Cochrane and its stakeholders are currently responding to, and involved in science research and innovations that are critical to mitigating the effects of this pandemic during this extraordinary time of challenge. As a result, the deadline for ALL submissions of abstracts and workshops has been extended for an additional two weeks, to Monday 6th April 2020.

We know that it may be difficult to make plans at this time and currently our plans to hold the Colloquium in-person remain unchanged. However, we recognize that we are facing uncertain weeks and months ahead, and so we commit to you that a decision will be made and communicated as to whether the Toronto Colloquium will physically take place or move to become a fully virtual scientific event by Friday, June 5, 2020.

Cochrane is a formidable global community of supporters and members, and now, more than ever, our values of connection, community and collaboration hold us together.

Our best wishes,
Cochrane Canada & the Toronto Colloquium Organizing Committee
