The WHO Collaborating Centre for Public Health Training and Education / Department of Primary Care and Public Health are pleased to announce a one-day workshop on Evidence-informed health policy-making conducted by Dr Ulysses Panisset (Coordinator, Research and Knowledge Translation Unit , Knowledge, Ethics & Research department – WHO HQ) ,which will take place on Tuesday, 16 September 2014 at our Charing Cross campus.
This one day workshop is the product of a series of discussions the WHO CC had with WHO in regard to the systematic use of health research evidence in policy-making and using tools, such as EVIPNet, to promote partnerships at the country level between policy-makers, researchers and civil society in order to facilitate both policy development and policy implementation through the use of the best scientific evidence, with particular focus on low and middle-income countries. As such, Dr Ulysses has kindly agreed to offer us his time and effort to lead on a workshop, the objectives of which are:
- Learn about the EVIPNet-SUPPORT tools and resources available to health system policymakers and researchers to support their use of research evidence in policy-making;
- Enhance participants’ knowledge in acquiring, assessing, adapting and applying research evidence;
- Learn the fundamentals of how to prepare evidence briefs for policy and organize policy dialogues;
- Identify what participants’ own units/departments and their organizations as a whole can do to better support the use of research evidence in health system policy-making.
This is a closed event restricted to faculty and staff, however, material will be made available after the workshop.
