Following the COVID-19 global outbreak earlier this year, the COMET Management Group has made the difficult decision to postpone COMET VIII until it is safe to go ahead with the meeting, and a new date for this meeting will be confirmed as soon as it is possible to do so. As we had already started to plan an exciting programme for COMET VIII, we still want to be able to share this with you. We are therefore planning a webinar series that will start on October the 8th and 9th 2020, with two consecutive webinars on the days that would have been COMET VIII, followed by once a fortnight after that.
We are pleased to announce our COMET VIII keynote speaker, Hywel Williams, (NIHR Health Technology Assessment Programme, and Professor of Dermato-Epidemiology and Co-Director, Centre of Evidence-Based Dermatology, Queen’s Medical Centre Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust) will kick off this exciting series on October the 8th talking about research waste.
On the 9th of October, Paula Williamson and Sarah Gorst (University of Liverpool) will share with you what they see as key findings across the body of evidence about COS in the COMET database.
The third webinar to be confirmed will be on Tuesday the 20th of October, featuring Eleanor Perfetto (National Health Council) and will focus on including patients in core outcome set work.
More details about forthcoming webinars will be announced as they become available.
