Colloquium 2007

The Seventh Annual Campbell Collaboration Colloquium entitled "Quality, Credibility and Utility: the Relevance of Systematic Reviews" welcomed participants from a variety of professions around the globe. A new "Policy Forum" introduced researchers to the perspectives of policymakers. Senior government officials in the UK described their information needs to the research community. This opened networking opportunities for policy makers, practitioners, and researchers to explore similar goals.
The Colloquium's distinguished keynote speakers aligned the worlds of policy making and academic research discussions. These presentations highlighed for researchers the different types of evidence currently used to support policy making.
Researchers and academics from various backgrounds stimulated discussions about moving research evidence into the policy and practice arena. Later presentations on communication illustrated techniques for mobilizing the “best available evidence” to be accessible to stakeholders and policymakers.
