For the first time at a Cochrane Colloquium, we took the conversation #BeyondTheRoom. Beyond the Room is a digital conference service, started in 2016 by André Tomlin from the Mental Elf. Its aim is to increase the reach and impact of health events by live tweeting and podcasting from them, to involve people virtually and facilitate a much more democratic conversation.
Our Beyond the Room team included @SarahChapman30 @TheJackLeahy @Mental_Elf @MightyCasey @DBadenoch @sally_crowe Selena @CochraneUK and @Laconic_doc They have recorded podcasts with some of the speakers and presenters at the Colloquium - Have a listen!
