Health the big winners of the Where is the evidence conference 2013

Posted by Amanda Lawrence on 23 October 2013

Thanks to the many people who entered the competition to win one of two free passes to Where is the evidence 2013: Recognising the value of grey literature for policy and practice. It was great to have so many enthusiastic entries.

We have two lucky winners, both from the health area. Congratulations to Elida Meadows, Policy & Research Officer at the Mental Health Council of Tasmania and to Melissa Raven, Research Fellow at the Primary Health Care Research & Information Service (PHC RIS) in Adelaide. A fantastic resource - check out their guide to grey literature.

Mellissa said she is keen to attend because she is "interested in the use of grey literature in policy advocacy and policy making, with a particular focus on critical appraisal of the rigor of grey literature, an issue that is often overlooked in discussions about evidence-based practice and policy."

Unfortunately Frances Brown from the federal Attorney-General's Department was not able to take up her free pass: "I am disappointed that I will miss the conference this year – I have been both a producer and user of grey literature over many years and I think it is a huge asset to policymakers, commentators and academics."

We can only agree.
