Evidence to Impact in Public Health

What counts as ‘evidence’ and whether we can ‘create impact’ are contested issues. This conference will aim to explore these debates.  

Driven by the evidence-based practice and policy movement of the 1990s and the increasing rise of the ‘impact agenda’ (particularly in the UK), academics are constantly being challenged to demonstrate that their research can make a difference.  Practice and policy partners are similarly challenged to demonstrate that their decisions and activity are informed by the evidence base.  Are these reasonable and achievable demands?   What do we know about how to do this well?  Does this challenge us to think differently about the role of research and the research process in public health?

A call for papers will follow shortly.
