Welcome Message

On behalf of the Nethersole School of Nursing, Faculty of Medicine, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, I am greatly pleased to invite you to join us in the beautiful city of Hong Kong on 23-24 and 27-28 May 2019 for the First Cochrane Hong Kong Symposium. The theme of the symposium is ‘Paving the Way for and Achieving Excellence in Evidence-informed Health Care in the Belt and Road Regions’.

Over the past two decades, Cochrane has significantly contributed to the promotion of evidence-informed health care decision-making through producing high quality and accessible systematic reviews and other synthesised research evidence. Cochrane evidence is internationally regarded as a powerful tool to enhance health care knowledge and practice. With the establishment of Cochrane Hong Kong, our School is committed to working hand in hand with other Cochrane centres around the world especially those in Asia and the Belt and Road regions towards a shared vision for better health. I am pleased to share that recently we have received government funding to organise this symposium to promote evidence-based practice and evidence-informed health care in the Belt and Road regions.

This symposium aims to provide an international multidisciplinary platform for health care providers, policy makers, academics and researchers to discuss contemporary strategies and issues in evidence-informed health care and policy formulation. It will also offer a valuable opportunity for participants to learn, network, exchange knowledge and foster relationships. Through the symposium, participants are expected to identify gaps and priority areas for evaluating innovations, examine review methodologies, and share new strategies and challenges in advancing the use of reliable research evidence to inform practice and policy-making, and to address some of the world’s most-concerned diseases and health conditions.

During the symposium, internationally renowned Cochrane experts and health care scholars and researchers will be invited as keynote or plenary speakers. Also, there will be concurrent sessions to look into a wide range of theme-related topics, helping participants to make informed decisions for enhanced quality of care and health outcomes. After the symposium, a series of professional workshops will be arranged to enrich participants’ knowledge and competencies in understanding and using systematic reviews in particular Cochrane Reviews.

Hong Kong is a unique and vibrant city bringing together the richness of Chinese and western cultures in a spectacular setting. Apart from attending the symposium, participants may also take this opportunity to explore the beauty and attractions of our city, which I believe will be an exciting and unforgettable experience.

We look forward to seeing you at the symposium in May 2019.
