About GIMBE Foundation

The mission of GIMBE Foundation is to strengthen continuing medical education of health professionals as self‐directed lifelong learning process integrated into clinical practice; improve methodological quality, ethics, integrity and social value of health research; translate the best evidence into professional, managerial and political decision‐making; enhance the quality of healthcare in terms of safety, efficacy, appropriateness, equity, consumer involvement, efficiency.


The International Society for Evidence-Based Health Care exists to foster and promote EBHC globally within the environment of a recognized organization, bringing together and strengthening efforts started in different countries. Such integrated environment may provide a context of continuous exchange and contribution within which resources and principles of EBHC may be achieved in a way that amplify their use and effectiveness worldwide.

The scientific board whish to thank all authors who submitted their works. Abstract submission is now closed.

Authors will receive the notification of abstracts fate within 31st March 2023.
