McMaster Health Forum to host workshop on finding and using research evidence

March 16, 2015

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.

The Forum has 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.

The June workshop offered by the McMaster Health Forum is a complement to the online version of the course, and is designed for those who wish to master the skills needed to find the most reliable research evidence and to use it to inform and influence decisions about how the various parts of a health system function. 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.
