The Solution Room: JBI Evidence-based Healthcare Symposium


                          Having trouble getting evidence into practice?

The Solution Room is a dynamic and interactive half-day designed to provide pragmatic solutions to your challenges in getting evidence into practice.

Our esteemed panel of speakers will give you ‘real-world’ insights during their presentations. As a ‘think tank’ they will then respond directly to questions around challenges during the panel discussion. Their aim is to provide practical solutions for you in your clinical setting.

Our panel of speakers are prominent international speakers in evidence implementation. You will also hear from local clinicians who will provide an overview of their evidence-based implementation projects, their challenges and solutions.

Meet our speakers, network over a supplied lunch and get back to work inspired and equipped with solutions!

Full program to be released in February 2019.
