Evidence and Insight in Context: Key Steps Toward Evidence-Informed Policymaking

Learning Objectives:

  • To understand how key sources of pre-appraised research evidence (e.g., ACCESSSS, Health Evidence, Health Systems Evidence, and the McMaster Optimal Aging Portal) align with key policy questions
  • To appreciate how deliberative dialogues (e.g., stakeholder dialogues and citizen panels) can elicit insights informed by both the best available research evidence and the contextual factors that will influence the policymaking process
  • To recognize that a solid understanding of both the health system context and the political system context are needed for evidence and insights to inform policymaking
