Evidence-Informed Health Policy Workshop

Taught by the Center for Evidence-based Policy at Oregon Health & Science University, this two-day workshop for state policymakers and staff addresses the types of research evidence available and how to use them. Participants learn how to find relevant research, how to evaluate the quality of the research found, and how to apply the research to policy. Whenever possible, topics focus on issues that policymakers are grappling with and that they believe research evidence could help to resolve. Follow-up and refresher workshops are also offered to assess progress and determine ongoing needs. Convened at the request of states, these workshops are paid for by the MMF.
