Gaining a better understanding of how knowledge circulates in the political sphere can help improve knowledge-sharing practices so as to increase their desired outcomes. In order to deepen this understanding, a graphic representation (a logic model) of the processes through which public health knowledge can influence public policy is presented in this document. Questions are included in the text to prompt readers to reflect on their own knowledge-sharing practices, on the contexts in which they are carried out and on the factors they are able to act upon to facilitate the knowledge-sharing process.
This briefing note is the first in a series of documents focused on knowledge sharing in the context of public policy development. To read more about the series of documents, click here.
