This conference will be discussing issues surrounding the development of guidelines and implementing evidence-based recommendations in clinical practice. We are seeking more patient representation at this conference.
Come and join the members of the DECIDE project group and an invited audience of international specialists in evidence-based guideline development as they seek to develop strategies to get evidence-based recommendations implemented in clinical practice.
The conference will discuss issues around communicating evidence to (in no particular order):
   Clinicians needing to make treatment decisions
   Clinicians needing to make decisions about diagnostic tests
   Clinicians, managers, or policy makers needing to make decisions about screening
   Health service managers
   Policy makers with responsibility for health services
   Patients and carers

The conference will be of interest to developers of guidelines and other evidence-based products as well as guideline users and will offer hands-on experience of new tools under development.
