On behalf of the organising committee of the 8th Biennial Joanna Briggs Colloquium, I would like to invite you to Chiang Mai, Thailand in 2012.
The complexity of the global health agenda and the information now available to guide global health policy and practice decisions remains significant. Diversity in practice, culture, clinical settings and evidence presents unimaginable challenges to researchers, health professionals and citizens alike. It is imperative that, as a global health and research community, we draw together our expertise in the fields of synthesis, transfer and utilisation, to be able to make the most of the information available to us. This event is an opportunity for us to channel our diverse skills and knowledge, to share, to network and to learn from each other.
Health professionals from all disciplines will benefit from this conference. We encourage researchers, practitioners and citizens (consumers) to join us in beautiful Chiang Mai to work together to close the gap between research, policy and practice.
On behalf of the Joanna Briggs Institute and the Thailand Centre for Evidence-based Nursing and Midwifery I would like to invite you to join us and we look forward to seeing you there!
