Finding and Using Research Evidence to Inform Decision-making in Health Systems and Organizations

Course format: Five-day training workshops

For interested individual policymakers, stakeholders and researchers, the McMaster Health Forum is offering regular in-person training workshops twice per year, in April and in October. Each workshop consists of a combination of online instruction and five days of in-person workshop in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Dates for the upcoming workshops are:

Spring: April 24-28, 2017 (registration open until April 7, 2017)

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.
