Satellite event prior to Cochrane Colloquium 2020 in Toronto
StaR Child Health Summit 2020
Essential Evidence for Sick Children: Better Science, Informed Decisions, Healthier Children
With the Guidelines International Network (G-I-N) conference and the Cochrane Colloquium being held back-to-back in Toronto later this year, this provides a great opportunity to use the time between these two events for the:
5th StaR Child Health Summit on 2-3 October 2020 in Toronto, Canada
This international gathering of child health research stakeholders will
Celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Cochrane Child Health Field
Acknowledge StaR’s coming of age after 10 years of improvement in child health research methods (approx. 150 methodological papers) and 4 previous StaR Child Health summits (Amsterdam, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Quebec City)
Showcase child health Research HOT TOPICS for the 2020’s related to enhanced pediatric research syntheses, pediatric clinical trials, and clinical practice guidelines
The Summit will be one and a half days of interactive plenary sessions and scientific debates focusing on practical approaches and solutions to the top 10 challenges in child health research for the next decade, with over 100 international child health researchers, health care providers, policy makers, consumers, and journal editors joining us.
Date & Time: From the afternoon on Friday October 2, 2020 (13:00-17:30, after closure of the G-I-N meeting), followed by an evening reception until 7pm, then a full day (8:00-18:00, light breakfast & lunch included) on Saturday October 3, 2020.
The Summit will be convened by the 2020 StaR Child Health executive team (Martin Offringa, Lisa Askie, Terry Klassen), in collaboration with Cochrane Child Health (Sarah Elliott, Ricardo Fernandes, Denise Thomson, Lisa Hartling) and the Cochrane Children and Families Network (Robert Boyle).
