The recently-launched, CrowdCARE (Crowdsourcing Critical Appraisal of the Research Evidence) is a free online clinical tool, which has been developed by two of our Senior Lecturers and Researchers, Dr Laura Downie, and Dr Michael Pianta
CrowdCARE is an electronic platform that uses crowdsourcing to enable people to share and access critically-appraised research evidence, as the basis for informing evidence-based practice.
In this session, we will demonstrate the functionality and capacity of CrowdCARE as a tool to use in your daily optometric practice, to stay up to date with the latest, best-available evidence. We will go through the steps on how to create a free account, how you can contribute to the database, and how you can use the system to help with patient management.

In many western legal systems, public law stands at the crossroads. Now a well–established field of law and doctrinal inquiry, public law has nevertheless either lost its self-evident "autonomy" in the continental systems (as in France) or never acquired such a privileged status (UK, and possibly Australia), despite its development. Redefining the boundaries of public law now seems more necessary than ever. This may raise questions as to the status of the core concepts in the field, and a willingness to challenge the very nature of the "publicness" of public law.

Ross Burns, whose recent publications includeAleppo, A History and Monuments of Syria, presents an analysis of why the country’s incomparable store of historical buildings and sites has been so deliberately targeted. In many cases such damage represents not collateral casualties but the deliberate ‘weaponising’ of symbols of the past—turning historical treasures from many civilisations into weapons in a propaganda war. While such deliberate targeting represents only a small proportion of the carnage afflicted on the country—compared to the results of deliberate assaults on civilian housing, medical facilities and schools—such cultural assets can play an important role in the restoration of Syrian national identity after the end of the conflict.
This event is co-presented by the Ian Potter Museum of Art.
