As a National Collaborating Centre, the NCCHPP has a knowledge synthesis, translation and exchange mandate. Translating research is one way to improve access to research published in different provinces on subjects pertaining to healthy public policy. This document translates a knowledge synthesis produced by INSPQ researchers Nathalie St-Amour, Johanne Laverdure, Sylvianne Manseau and Université du Québec en Outaouais professor Annie Devault..
This document will be useful as a topical resource but also illustrates some of the work carried out by the INSPQ in its mandate to advise the Québec Health Minister to promote healthy public policy.
This document has been edited and revised by the NCCHPP from an original document published by l'Institut national de santé publique du Québec.
