Interested in learning how to evaluate your policy influence?
Do you promote the uptake and dissemination of population health interventions? Are you interested in exploring public health–related case studies of policy influence? The Guide to Policy-Influence Evaluation can help!
This guide was developed by the Public Health Agency of Canada’s Innovation Strategy and produced by Cathexis Consulting.
How can the Guide to Policy-Influence Evaluation help you?
The Guide to Policy-Influence Evaluation was developed to help organizations use policy influence to improve the uptake and evaluation of evidence-based population health interventions. This process is divided into the four steps of evaluation planning. Each step includes two or more resources to support it. The resources are then summarized and important highlights are presented as they related to each step.
This webinar includes an overview of the Guide by its developers, followed by a presentation from a community based organization who evaluated the impact on policies within their work to promote healthier weights.
The Guide to Policy-Influence Evaluation includes three public health–related case studies:
•Healthy weights among Aboriginal children and youth
•Anti-bullying for primary schools
•Food security and healthy weights
