    • Description:
      Using science to inform decision making ensures that policies and practices used in the prevention, detection, and treatment of diseases are based on data, principles, interventions, and findings that have been proven through appropriate scientific methods and are therefore more likely to improve health outcomes.

      Policy is purposeful action by an organization or institution to address an identified problem or issue through executive, legislative, or administrative means. It can be voluntary or legally binding.

      At the end of the training, you will be able to present policy recommendations to key stakeholders that include:

      • Scope and impact of the health issue

      • Costs (economic and morbidity/mortality) of the issue

      • Recommended policy to address the issue

      • Consequences of implementing the policy, including effectiveness,

      • costs, savings

      • How the policy option(s) can be implemented

      • Barriers to implementing the policy and ways to overcome them
