Welcome to the 4th international Conference for Evidence-Based Neonatology, 10-12 November 2017, in Hyderabad India
As the number of articles world-wide in the medical press explodes, the importance of understanding and disseminating the principles of Evidence Based Medicine becomes greater. This is a central focus of the Society of EBNEO.
At this Fourth international meeting of our young society, as in prior meetings – we include talks with both neonatal contents and clinical epidemiological methodology. We hope that this meeting will facilitate an international on-going collaboration and interchange. This meeting will be in association with Indian Association of Neonatology.
There are two organizational features that are new at this year’s meeting.
Firstly, we will have two workshops: one on advanced methods for meta-analysis.
Secondly a workshop on running randomized controlled trials in the less well-resourced countries.
In addition we have now almost 2 years after having launched the “EBNEO Journal Club”. The intent of this was to provide a structured synopsis of studies to allow a quick methodologically based over-view. It follows the model of the American College of Physicians Journal Club – which has proven an effective leaning and dissemination tool. These are now being published with pubmed referencing at Acta Paediatrica.
In all of these ventures – there is ample opportunity for all neonatologists interested in methodologically based Neonatal care – to participate – from the ground level!
We will open the registration early 2017, when we will also present the detailed conference program. Until then, please sign up for a free membership to ensure you get information through our newsletter when the registration opens.
We hope to see you at this exciting venture!
