InterTASC ISSG 2014

PenTAG hosts the 1st InterTASC ISSG Conference

The University of Exeter Forum building played host to 132 delegates who met on July 9th to explore the role of information, and information specialists, in health technology assessments (HTA). The conference attracted a range of delegates from industry, from NICE, from technology assessment groups and other methodological research groups, who travelled to Exeter from around the UK and Europe.

The agenda included discussion led by Rumona Dickson (Liverpool Reviews and Implementation Group), and included talks by PenTAG’s Simon Briscoe on Web-Searching in HTA. Dr Tom Jefferson closed the day with a keynote entitled ‘Hayashi’s problem: The use of regulatory information for research synthesis’.

The conference was organised and chaired by Chris Cooper (Chair of InterTASC ISSG) and Jenny Lowe .
