MAGIC and the Evidence Ecosystem

In this Cochrane Learning Live webinar, Per Olav Vandvik, Founder and CEO of MAGIC Evidence Ecosystem Foundation, will present on three areas.

He will start by giving an update on the Evidence Ecosystem and how we can all play a part in creating a stronger, more connected future for evidence-based medicine. There will then be a demonstration of some of the key features of the MAGICapp platform, focussing on areas of interest to the Cochrane Community, including creating evidence summaries and decision aids. The webinar will finish with a demonstration of our latest innovation, which is the MATCH-IT tool for exploring evidence from network meta-analyses in an interactive summary of findings format.
