Policy dialogues for evidence

Olivia Biermann, PhD candidate at Karolinska Institutet, Stokholm will be hosting a seminar titled “Policy dialogues for evidence-informed policy-making.” 

A brief description of the seminar is given below:

Substantial investment is made in health research. Nevertheless, there remains a significant gap between what is scientifically known and what is being used in policy. To facilitate evidence-informed policy-making the interaction with and among stakeholders is key. Examples of such interaction include policy dialogues which convene key stakeholders to deliberate on priority health topics. Policy dialogues support the integration of research evidence with tacit knowledge of local health policy-makers, and thus contribute to bridging the research-to-policy gap.

Intended learning outputs/outcomes of the seminar:

  • Understanding of evidence-informed health policy-making;
  • Insights into the WHO’s Evidence-informed Policy Network and its activities; 
  • Understanding of policy dialogues and their preparatory steps; and
  • Familiarization with message-tailoring for a specific target group (hands-on exercise). 

You are invited to join the seminar in person or join the live seminar via Zoom, using the link provided at the top of the page.
