What is an effective way to share public health knowledge with the municipal sector? We have just published a document that presents the views expressed by civil servants in Canadian municipalities.

This document complements our series of resources on knowledge sharing in the context of public policy development:

  • An overview of the processes through which public health knowledge can influence public policy;
  • A literature review and the recording of a webinar focused on the advisors of policy makers (who are they, and why and how can they be approached when one wants to share public health knowledge?);
  • A mapping study of published research (2000-2014) on knowledge sharing targeting public policies, and a companion interactive table that makes it possible to sort the studies retrieved by type of context studied;
  • A combination of keywords designed to query databases to identify documents on knowledge sharing targeting public policies.

Available soon: a document and a webinar on policy briefs. Are policy briefs an effective way to share knowledge with political circles? What are the best practices for producing briefs? To stay informed about these activities, subscribe to our e-Bulletin.  

The production of the NCCHPP website has been made possible through a financial contribution from the Public Health Agency of Canada.
