The evidence arena: interaction between research, practice and policy
Solid evidence is crucial for improving healthcare practice and policy. However, the way evidence is valued and used is influenced by the agendas of various stakeholders.

Internationally renowned speakers will reflect on developments, factors and actors that play a pivotal role in the evidence arena, and on the way to go.
