Measuring the Impact of Knowledge Organizations in Health PHPC Collaborator Session
at the Canadian Public Health Association Conference
Tuesday, June 11, 13:45-15:15

Session description:
In the last two decades, a governmental shift toward a stewardship role with a focus on policy development and decision making has resulted in the formation of numerous knowledge organizations. Knowledge organizations (KOs) have mandates that include the development, synthesis and exchange of knowledge to governments, practitioners and other stakeholders, and have come to play an important role in supporting policies and decisions with sound evidence.  These are organizations such as Public Health Ontario (PHO), the BC Center for Disease Control (BCCDC), Institut nationale de santé publique de Quebec (INSPQ) and the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) and the National Collaborating Centres across Canada

This session includes presentations from both knowledge organizations (KO) and knowledge users (KU) on the potential impacts of KOs, and challenges to measuring the use of information in practice and policy. These presentations will be followed by an interactive discussion on how physicians and other practitioners can respond to the challenges of using evidence and information in decision making, increasing system resilience and capacity building

Objectives:
  1. Identify the principles, practices and challenges of measuring the use of evidence and information in decision making.
