Impact of the NCCHPP's Publications 2013 – 2014 Evaluation
This briefing note presents the results of the NCCHPP's study of the impact of its publications and illustrates the analysis of the impacts of our knowledge-sharing activities, based on a scale of use inspired by the work of Skinner.
Published in March 2015. Description.  Download  1.2 MB

This document aims to achieve two objectives. First, it reflects the NCCHPP's will to share its evaluation results, including recommendations from users. Secondly, it allows for reflection on the evaluation of our knowledge-sharing strategy by showing how we partially operationalize that strategy by evaluating the impacts of our publications.

Even if we wished that the results of our knowledge-sharing activities were immediate and perfectly aligned with our objectives, it would be unrealistic to think that that this would always occur. Once our knowledge-sharing activities are launched, the results depend on a group of factors, some that can be controlled and some that cannot.

In this way, organizations like the NCCHPP that practise knowledge sharing can have a direct effect on the work they produce and the means of diffusion, but they have little or no control over their users' characteristics, their organizations and their contexts. Evaluating knowledge-sharing activities must take these elements into account.

This briefing note features a nuanced approach without pretending to solve all of the issues related to evaluation, including selection bias or the cumulative effect of several publications within the same thematic area. Finally, it contains users' proposals for some of the Centre's activities.
