Examples of the Use and Adaptation of the NCCHPP's Framework for Analyzing Public Policies

The NCCHPP presents a few examples of use and adaptation of its Framework for Analyzing Public Policies by different public health actors in Canada. Please find below six examples collected during a first call for stories, launched in December 2017.
Updated in July 2018. Description.
 

The NCCHPP's Framework for Analyzing Public Policies has been used by different public health actors in different contexts in Canada.

Below, you will find examples of use and ways in which the analytical framework has been adapted to support practice. It aims to facilitate network-building among public health actors through the discovery of common interests and/or challenges encountered. Through these stories, you can observe how some public health actors have made the NCCHPP's analytical framework their own by adapting it to suit their needs; perhaps it might inspire other public health colleagues to use it to carry out their own projects.



Each of the eamples showcased describes :

  • the context in which the NCCHPP's analytical framework was used;
  • the adaptations made;
  • if appropriate, the data method collection used;
  • the lessons learned;
  • the impact on public policies, programs and/or interventions;
  • if appropriate, the next steps.

Also, if any resources have been published relating to the projects, we provide links so that you may access them (in their language of publication, in French or in English).
