Course Description:

Evidence-informed public health is recognized as a foundational standard for developing program and policy interventions to improve population health and reduce health inequities. Research, evidence and knowledge need to play a central role not only in policy and program decision-making but also in the implementation of evidence- informed interventions.

However, many challenges exist to identifying the appropriate evidence, disseminating it to different stakeholders, and implementing it in different settings. Accessing, assessing, applying and adapting the appropriate evidence is a challenge across all health systems. Numerous approaches have been developed and used to assist in the knowledge transfer and exchange of appropriate and relevant evidence to stakeholders. Implementation is a multidimensional and inter- professional challenge and there is a need to evaluate interventions, frameworks, models and methods to implement evidence-based findings in the real world for impactful and sustainable change and utilization. This course is designed to support an understanding of concepts in the knowledge to action continuum: obtaining the necessary evidence, disseminating it and implementing it.
