The countdown to the EBHC International Joint Conference 2013 has begun: the 6th edition of the International Conference of Evidence-based Health Care Teachers & Developers will be held jointly with the 2nd Conference of International Society for Evidence-based Health Care.
Building on previous highly successful meetings, the program aims to foster international exchange and networking in the mutual pursuit of better tools, techniques and curricula for achieving and teaching EBHC. The Sicily statement on evidence-based practice, one of the most influential papers on EBP, and the Sicily statement on classification and development of evidence-based practice learning assessment tools were born in 2005 and 2009 editions.
Meet EBHC teachers and developers from around the world in a 3-day program that will include renowned keynote speakers, oral presentations, workshop, poster sessions, survey with televoter, and productive small group sessions to encourage exchange and the development of new ideas.
Join in, learn about and share advances in Evidence-Based Health Care while having fun! You will discover an intense intellectual exchange in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.
You will be staying on the beautiful Sicily island in the Mediterranean seaside town of Taormina, famous for its never-ending sun, hospitable people, rich history, colorful culture, and tasty food.
The conference venue is the Hotel Caparena, a lush scenario filled by the scent of a subtropical garden of palm and acacia trees, red hibiscus, and orange bougainvillea flowers.
Whether you are an EBHC expert or a novice, university professor or teacher of your colleagues, boardroom policy-maker or frontline decision-maker, if you are involved in teaching or developing Evidence-Based Health Care, we look forward to seeing you in Sicily 2013.
We promise you will be delighted.
