10.30 - 12.00 Introducing the Ageing sub-group of the Campbell Social Welfare Coordinating Group The Ageing sub-group is a recent addition to the activity portfolio of the Campbell Collaboration. People are living longer, and there is an increasing need to develop and share evidence to bring about change to improve later lives. The Ageing sub-group is also part of the Cochrane Campbell Global Ageing Partnership between Cochrane and Campbell, which seeks to become the global hub for knowledge, evidence and ideas about global ageing.
13.00 - 14.30 The role of collaboration in complex evidence synthesis A team from the Campbell national centre for UK & Ireland, which is hosted by the Centre for Evidence and Social Innovation (CESI) at Queen's University Belfast, will report on their activities over the last year. They will also present findings from three recently-completed systematic reviews on homelessness.
15.30 - 17.00 Current activities and future directions of the Campbell Disability Coordinating Group (DCG) Since its inception in May 2017, the DCG has seen steady growth. A panel of DCG review authors will share their experiences with the production process and showcase a variety of synthesis products, including the traditional systematic review, mixed-methods reviews and evidence and gap maps.
10.00 - 11.30 The Africa Centre for Systematic Reviews & Knowledge Translation The aim of the Africa Centre is to build capacity for knowledge translation for public policy in Africa cutting across health, education and food security. The session will start with an introduction to the Africa Centre-Campbell initiative in Uganda.
12.30 - 14.00 Child and adolescent welfare This session will address the effectiveness of interventions and support that aim to protect children and adolescents from harm, or that focus on promoting healthy growth and development.
15.00 - 17.00 Panel discussion: The Partnership for Economic Policy (PEP) at WWGS 2020 PEP is a Southern-based global organisation that supports locally-led, locally-designed research initiatives in developing countries. This session will discuss PEP’s approach to contextualising research for policy use, as well as the experience of three PEP grant recipients in Argentina, Malawi and Guinea Bissau.
10.00 - 11.30 Knowledge translation and implementation (KTI) evidence synthesis: Thinking beyond systematic reviews Knowledge translation and implementation (KTI) is an increasingly important and complex field. There seems to be a lot of confusion about what constitutes KTI research and the appropriate methodology to evaluate them. We may need to move beyond the experimental studies and systematic review paradigm and adopt other types of study designs.
11.45 - 12.45 Evidence synthesis for sexual and reproductive health and rights The field of sexual and reproductive health and rights is an expanding domain, from its former focus on family planning as a policy intended primarily to control population to a policy domain for establishing the rights of women to control decisions concerning their bodies and sexuality, with emerging issues regarding sexual orientation and the engagement of men and boys. But how good is the evidence underpinning this growing policy agenda? This session will present an on-going evidence map of systematic reviews which include studies from low- and lower-middle income countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
13.00 - 14.00 Meet the Campbell Editors Editors from Campbell Coordinating Groups will talk about their scope of work and editorial processes. They will also answer questions from past, current and prospective authors. New Campbell authors are welcome to ask about registering and completing a Campbell review.
15.00 - 16.30 The Nutrition sub-group of the International Development Coordinating Group Join this session to find out about the systematic reviews in progress, and about the work of the group in the fields of food systems, food security and nutrition.
10.30 - 12.00 Introducing the Campbell Climate Solutions Coordinating Group and climate evidence synthesis The Climate Solutions Coordinating Group (CSCG) is a recent addition to the activity portfolio of the Campbell Collaboration. The mission of the CSCG is to coordinate, faciliate and encourage the production, updating and accessibility of high quality systematic reviews that support evidence-based decisionmaking on climate change mitigation and adaptation.
12.45 - 13.45 Innovations in presenting evidence and gap maps: new functionalities in EPPI-Mapper Evidence and gap maps are a visual representation of the evidence available, or missing, in a particular domain. The EPPI-Centre mapping utility, developed in partnership with Campbell, is available to anyone using EPPI-Reviewer for research synthesis. This session will demonstrate the mapping utility’s functionality and show researchers how it can be used to present data in different ways. A number of new functionalities will be examined in detail. We will also look at ongoing work in creating online web databases that can complement and span multiple maps. We are starting to scope the next phase of development, so this session is also an opportunity for participants to help direct future additions and enhancements.
13.30 - 15.00 Highlights from the Campbell Social Welfare Coordinating Group (SWCG) An overview of SWCG and its systematic review and evidence and gap map projects. This session will also feature the winner of the 2020 Leonard E. Gibbs Award.
15.30 - 17.00 The Campbell Business & Management Coordinating Group An update on the activities of the Campbell Business & Management Coordinating Group, with a discussion of two systematic reviews currently in production.
