Mike Clarke - Evidence Aid: Using Systematic Reviews to Improve Access to Evidence for Humanitarian Emergencies

October 27, 2017

Evidence Aid is an international initiative to improve access to reliable evidence that will help people and organisations make well-informed decisions about interventions, actions and strategies in the disaster setting. It focuses on systematic reviews as the most reliable source of research evidence, maximising the power of existing research, avoiding undue emphasis on single studies and reducing the waste associated with research that is ignored or not accessible to decision makers. Evidence Aid is knowledge champion for influencers of the humanitarian sector, including funders, policy makers, NGOs, and humanitarian professionals. Evidence Aid was established by members of the Cochrane Collaboration after the Indian Ocean tsunami of December 2004. It provides access to information relevant to disaster risk reduction, planning, response, recovery, resilience and rehabilitation. This presentation will discuss the need for Evidence Aid, and describes its activities. Read more and listen to the Q&As here.

Mariska Leeflang - Evidence Synthesis of Diagnostics: GRADE and How It Can Be Used for Veterinary Evidence

October 4, 2017

While textbooks on evidence-based medicine still mainly focus on accuracy studies as most appropriate level of evidence for diagnostic questions, the guideline developers have moved forward to patient important outcomes. In other words, a perfect test may still be useless if it does not change clinical decisionsand outcomes for patients. What is the current state of evidence-based diagnostics and how can this be translated to different veterinary situations? Read more and listen to the Q&As here.

Adam Swallow - Investigating the Use of Gastroprotectants as a Means of Preventing Iatrogenic Gastrointestinal Signs Associated With Immunosuppressive Corticosteroid Therapy. A Retrospective Study

September 20, 2017

Gastroprotectants are commonly prescribed in patients receiving immunosuppressive therapy with glucocorticoids. Presently, there is limited evidence to support such use of gastroprotectants. The objective of this study was to establish if the prophylactic use of gastroprotectants was associated with a reduced incidence of gastrointestinal signs in dogs receiving immunosuppressive doses of glucocorticoids, compared to not receiving prophylactic gastroprotectants.
