Our flagship projects
Electronic Cigarettes for Smoking Cessation
Jamie Hartmann-Boyce leads the Cochrane living systematic review of electronic cigarettes for smoking cessation, evaluating the effects of ECs to help smokers achieve long‐term abstinence.
Our multidisciplinary research team are undertaking several different research projects that are impacting EBM policy and practice, across a broad range of topics, including diabetes, weight management, paramedics in primary care and COVID-19.
EBHC DPhil research
Our EBHC student research addresses critical health problems and healthcare disciplines across EBM. By facilitating the dissemination and distribution of their research, we hope to help shape the way evidence is communicated and understood, and provide a platform that supports an Evidence-based connection, and encourages others to contribute, because #EvidenceResonates.
