This one-day workshop, held in French, was intended for public health professionals who are expected to produce knowledge syntheses to inform policy makers.
The learning objectives of the day were to enable participants to:
• Use an analytical framework that addresses several dimensions that are relevant to public policies and important to document (effectiveness, unintended effects, equity, cost, feasibility and acceptability).
• Construct the logic model of a public policy in order to guide data collection.
• Develop a literature review strategy that is both rigorous and adapted to public policies.
• Establish the steps to follow to organize deliberative processes in order to enhance the data from the literature review with the expertise of local actors. To read more on the JASP 2012 website, to view a short video description of the workshop, click here

The Centre has again offered this methodological workshop at JASP as part of a series of workshops on the method for synthesizing knowledge about public policies that we have organized during 2011 and 2012. Click on the links to find out more or to read the PPT slides from TOPHC
