David Moher Cochrane Methods Symposium: Bias and Beyond
hosted by the Bias Methods Group
Saturday 15th September 2018, 1:30pm - 5:30pm
Doug Altman, Isabelle Boutron, Asbjørn Hróbjartsson, Matthew Page, Camilla Hansen
After many years as a co-convenor of the Cochrane Bias Methods Group, David Moher decided to step down from the leadership in 2017. The Bias Methods Group and wider methods community wishes to thank David for his hard work and valuable contribution to methods research.
The Cochrane Methods Symposium provides an ideal opportunity to celebrate his contribution to methods research and to pause and reflect on the status of methods research today. We intend to recognise David’s very considerable impact on research synthesis methodology while also looking forward to provide an overview of selected hot topics within methods research relevant for the broader Cochrane community.
