We invite you to take part in a series of workshops and a symposium celebrating 20 years of the Cochrane Gynaecology and Fertility Group.

Anyone is welcome, whether or not you have been involved in Cochrane before.

Welcome speeches by Sir Iain Chalmers and Professor Richard Lilford will set the scene for our meeting and celebration.

Keynote speakers including Dr David Tovey (Editor in Chief of the Cochrane Library), Dr Fergus Macbeth (oncologist and guideline developer), Dr Melanie Davies (NICE), Professor Ben Willem Mol and Professor Siladitya Bhattacharya will provide insights and commentary about evidence and women's health.


  • Pre-symposium workshops offer editors and authors the opportunity to further develop their skills and expertise in Cochrane authoring including diagnostic test accuracy reviews.
  • Saturday night dinner at Balliol College
  • Two dedicated sessions for contributed paper presentations and space for posters. 

If you're involved in evidence synthesis or use evidence to inform practice and policy, this  event offers a great opportunity to discover and discuss the latest developments with leading researchers, thinkers and commentators in women's health. We think there's something for everyone in our program, and hope you can join us in Oxford in April 2016.
