Finding and Using Research Evidence: Workshop for Policymakers, Stakeholders and Researchers

Registration is now open for a five-day training workshop that will support policymakers, stakeholders and researchers in learning how to find and use research evidence in their work to reform, renew or strengthen health systems, and to get cost-effective programs, services and drugs to those who need them. The summer session of the ‘Finding and Using Research Evidence to Inform Decision-making in Health Systems and Organizations’ workshop will be held from June 15-19 at McMaster University. Registration is open until May 31, but act now as space is limited.

Colleagues at the McMaster Health Forum have led nearly 100 training workshops in more than 30 countries with health system policymakers, stakeholders and researchers from more than 60 countries. Drawing on this experience, the Forum provides online and in-person training about how to strengthen or reform health systems, and how to get cost-effective programs, services and drugs to those who need them, based on the best available research evidence. This training is for policymakers and stakeholders, as well as researchers, journalists and students.

All Health Systems Learning courses are available in multiple formats, which can be customized to suit your individual and organizational needs. Popular formats include the online course, alone or in combination with a customized in-person workshop, and Forum-hosted training workshops like the one planned for June.
