We are privileged to have partnered with the HRB-Trials Methodology Research Network, Evidence Synthesis Ireland and Cochrane Ireland to host our first online conference.
The HRB-Trials Methodology Research Network (HRB-TMRN) is a new, collaborative initiative between a number of Irish and international higher education institutes and methodology centres.
Its mission is to strengthen the methodology and reporting of trials in health and social care on the island of Ireland so that they become more relevant, accessible and influential for patients and other service users, practitioners, policy makers and the public.This will be achieved through a programme of work relating to the methodology of trials and focussed on (i) support (ii) training and education and (iii) research and innovation.
The primary aim of ESI is to build evidence synthesis knowledge, awareness and capacity among the public, health care institutions and policymakers, clinicians and researchers on the Island of Ireland. The secondary aim is to generate knowledge on methodological efficiencies in evidence syntheses.
Cochrane Ireland aims to promote the use of Cochrane evidence across the island of Ireland and to support engagement with Cochrane at all levels. As of December 2018, Cochrane Ireland is hosted within a new initiative called Evidence Synthesis Ireland, based at the National University of Ireland Galway. This new initiative is funded for three years by the Health Research Board of Ireland and the Research & Development Division of the Public Health Agency in Northern Ireland.
