2016 Cochrane Colloquium

Posted on 10 November 2016

Lesley Stewart was a speaker at the final plenary session of the 24th Cochrane Colloquium held in Seoul South Korea.

Lesley's presentation on "Data sharing through an individual participant data meta-analysis lens" noted that counter to criticism, academic trial investigators have been sharing individual-level data for many years, just doing so in a different way to current initiatives led mainly by the pharmaceutical industry. She also noted that data sharing initiatives were not just about technology and needed to take account of human factors and understand that motivation to share data may differ between publicly funded and industry trials.
