Description

Policy briefs are popular for sharing knowledge with policy makers. But what do we know about the effectiveness of these documents? What sections should they include? Should a policy brief recommend one specific policy option? How long should it be?

In this webinar, we will address these and many other questions by presenting data and best practices identified through a literature review (conducted for the NCCHPP by Caroline Tessier, Institut national de santé publique du Québec). We will also suggest a selection of practical guides for the production of policy briefs, from planning, through writing, to dissemination.

Learning objectives

This webinar is aimed for people who write policy briefs and people who supervise their production. Whether you are new or experienced, join us to reflect on your practices.

By the end of the webinar, you will be able to:

  • Understand the potential and the limits of policy briefs for sharing knowledge;
  • Plan the production of a policy brief in a way that maximizes its relevance for the intended audience;
  • Make an informed choice among possible contents and formats of policy briefs.
