Webinar: Does the Current Stock of Systematic Reviews Meet the Needs and Priorities of Policymakers and Other Stakeholders?

This webinar, containing the presentation slides, is now available. Downloading, copying, reusing, or distributing this document is not permissible.

Policymakers and stakeholders need immediate access to many types of research evidence to make informed decisions about the full range of questions that may arise regarding health systems.  This webinar discusses the findings of a recent paper profiling the availability of research evidence about health systems, and discuss broader efforts by the McMaster Health Forum (which is housing the Canadian Cochrane Policy Liaison Office, and Health Systems Evidence) to support policymakers in finding and using research evidence.  The webinar also features a tutorial on how to use of Health Systems Evidence database.
