Pre-Conference Symposium of EbIM and CIM
«Evidence-based Practice in Insurance Medicine»

Wednesday afternoon 16th September 2020
University Hospital Basel ZLF Building

Ten years ago, the University of Basel established the Clinical Professorship of Insurance Medicine, Evidence-based Insurance Medicine (EbIM), to promote the production of evidence in insurance medicine. Five years later, this chair founded the Cochrane Insurance Medicine (CIM) field with partners from the Netherlands, Sweden and Canada. Both activities made important contributions to professionalise insurance medicine in Switzerland and Europe and paved the way for an insurance medicine based on clinical research that informs practice.

WE ENGAGE IN RESEARCH

We will present our research on real-life work disability assessments and report on the development of a Core Outcome Set for work participation to facilitate the comparison of findings from different studies.

WE INFLUENCE PRACTICE

We illustrate how a Cochrane review from our unit affects Finnish policy on return-to-work and how reviews from Cochrane Work contribute to Dutch guideline recommendations. We demonstrate how CIM conveys knowledge to practitioners and stakeholders.

WE EDUCATE THE FUTURE GENERATION

By engaging in high quality education, we shape the professional development of insurance medicine.
