Vivli will host a workshop at the 2023 Cochrane Colloquium in London on September 4. The Cochrane Colloquium is an annual event for Cochrane in support of its mission to promote evidence-informed health decision-making.
Vivli’s workshop will focus on “Practical advice for accessing patient-level data from a data sharing platform for evidence synthesis.” This session will provide:
- an introduction to the Vivli platform, including an overview of data available and hands-on group work on how to submit a request for data
- an overview of first-hand experience of using patient level data using Vivli’s data sharing platform as a case study
- a discussion session focusing on some of the opportunities and challenges associated with using patient level data (for example: what to do when data needed to answer the hypothesis is not available via a single data sharing platform?)
This session will be a mixture of hands-on practice and opportunities to hear from researchers who have used the platform, patient advocates, and data providers. There will also be time for participants to ask questions about the data access process.
Vivli Senior Director Julie Wood will be joined by Alan Chant, the patient representative on the Independent Review Panel; Catrin Tudur Smith from the University of Liverpool; and Rebecca Sudlow from Roche to facilitate this workshop.
