This meeting is an opportunity to promote communication between the people who produce evidence-based research and analysis on one side, and the people who report on health, medical, and science research on the other. In bringing these groups together, we are hoping to open a dialogue which will support a mutual understanding of each group’s priorities and requirements. Through moderated discussion, interactive exercises, and sharing resources, we hope to establish channels for communication and identify action points for improving awareness raising, advocacy, and communicating success stories more widely.
