Bazian’s breakfast GIN

August 19th 2010

Bazian are going to be at the GIN (no, not that sort of gin, rather the Guidelines International Network) Conference in Chicago this year. The conference is being hosted by the American College of Chest Physicians and is from August 25 to 28. Our Clinical Programmes Director Rob Cook is co-presenting a breakfast workshop on the Saturday (28th) from 8 to 9.30am: “Evidence tables III: Prognostic and Economic evaluation”. The workshop will present and discuss the results of the working group set up to find ways to facilitate information sharing and avoid the duplication of effort in guideline development.

If you’re going to be at the GIN conference too, we’d like to meet you. Please come and introduce yourself to Rob Cook or Ceilidh Stapelkamp, one of our Senior Health Research Analysts. Better still, come to the workshop. What possible better way to spend a Saturday morning in Chicago?
