How to improve the evidence for work participation?


on Friday September 6th, 2019 at 09:30-18:00 to the

Inaugural symposium of the Amsterdam Satellite of Cochrane Work

at the Vrijzaal of Amsterdam Medical Center

Are you somehow involved with research to improve the health and safety of workers? Either by conducting said research or by implementing its results into practice? If yes, then this event is a prime learning and networking opportunity for you.

Starting in May 2019, Cochrane Work has expanded by establishing a Satellite at the Coronel Institute of Occupational Health, Amsterdam UMC, at the Academic Medical Center.  The Amsterdam Satellite of Cochrane Work group focuses on work participation interventions and work participation outcomes.

The Amsterdam Satellite of Cochrane Work organizes this inaugural symposium and hopes to provoke and stimulate your ideas about the topic of work participation. We have presenters from several countries including contributions by Regina Kunz (Basel Switzerland), Jos Verbeek (Kuopio, Finland), Christopher Prinz (OECD), Han Anema (Amsterdam UMC), and Ute Bültmann (Groningen UMC). 

Contributions will focus on topics including:
•    Plans of the Amsterdam Satellite of Cochrane Work
•    Collaboration between Cochrane Work and Insurance Medicine
•    Is there a need for a Core Outcome Set for Work participation?
•    Knowledge translation, blogs, infographics and storytelling to get you’re your message across
•    What should Cochrane Work do better for guideline developers?
•    What Cochrane Work evidence do policy makers need?
•    What is the future of randomized trials of occupational health interventions?

Admission to the Symposium is free but participants have to register via email. We start the day at 09:30 and end with music and drinks between 17:00-18:00.
