Have you ever tried putting forward public health knowledge in the hope of shaping public policy, with results falling short of your expectations? The political sphere has characteristics that one should be aware of in order to share knowledge more effectively and to understand the scope of achievable outcomes. Who are the major stakeholders to consider when sharing knowledge, and how does knowledge circulate among them? This interactive presentation addressed these questions, focusing on factors that public health professionals and researchers can act upon to facilitate the outcomes of knowledge sharing.
By the end of this webinar, participants had been shown how to:
- Recognize the distinctive challenges faced when sharing knowledge in policy-making contexts;
- Use a list of questions to reflect on their own practices in this field.
