A abordagem do Direito Sanitário baseado em evidências objetiva discutir a medicina baseada em evidências como instrumento identificador das melhores evidências científicas na literatura médica, para serem tomadas como bases científicas nas decisões judiciais na área da saúde, no momento em que novas tecnologias são adicionadas sob forte pressão sócio-política onerando o sistema de saúde, cujo orçamento é finito em todas as partes do mundo.
Findings will be presented of updated and unpublished Cochrane reviews on topics of colorectal and gastric surgical area. Emphasis will be given on the impact of the available evidence over the clinical decision in surgical practice. Discussion and audience participation will be encouraged.
Using examples from infectious diseases, to consider factors that may have influenced their dissemination, the engagement or otherwise of policymakers, and their influence in policy at the global and national level.
To facilitate discussion on review group editorial policies including prioritization strategies, responsiveness to policy directives, and consultation with stakeholders.
We hope the session will increase a strategic approach to review prioritisation linked to policy makers’ priorities.
Patient-reported outcomes (PROs), such as measures of physical and emotional function or health perceptions, are usually represented as continuous variables with change scores that clinicians, policy-makers and patients find very difficult to interpret. The purpose of this session is to present different strategies that are available to render these results more easily interpretable to the audiences of Cochrane reviews. Presenters will discuss a spectrum of approaches to interpreting PRO outcome data, and they will note the appeal of strategies that result in the proportion of patients who achieve important benefit from an intervention.
