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!
