The McMaster Health Forum is offering a workshop on how to use research evidence to inform health system policy issues as part of the regular in-person training workshop series. Registration for the spring 2017 workshop closes April 7, 2017.

The intended audience for the workshops include interested individual policymakers, stakeholders, and researchers. Each workshop consists of a combination of online instruction and five days of in-person workshop in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

Workshop participants will:

  • develop their knowledge about tools and resources available to help health system policymakers and stakeholders in order to support their use of research evidence;
  • examine the attitudes that are supportive of using research evidence in health system decision-making;
  • develop and practice their skills in acquiring, assessing, adapting and applying research evidence;
  • receive ongoing feedback from Forum faculty throughout the week, as well as opportunities to book one-on-one mentoring sessions; and
  • prepare a high-quality summary of the available research evidence on a topic they are actively working on in their own organizations.
