Peer-to-Peer Webinar Series: Success Stories in Evidence-Informed Decision Making (Webinar #1)

  • This event has passed.

September 14, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


There are many examples of evidence-informed decision making (EIDM) among public health professionals and organizations in Canada. However, these stories aren’t always shared within the public health community. The National Collaborating Centre for Methods and Tools (NCCMT) seeks to address this gap with an interactive, peer-led webinar series featuring a collection of EIDM success stories in public health.

These success stories will illustrate what EIDM in public health practice, programs and policy looks like across the country.

Join to engage with public health practitioners across Canada as they share their success stories of using or implementing EIDM in the real world. Each free webinar will feature two presentations.

It has been so rewarding to go from an idea to working with such a great group of dedicated people from so many different organizations towards a very fun and rewarding project. Several extremely engaged PVN members expressed interest in being part of piloting a patient virtual care peer support system. I am confident that this is the beginning of many more exciting collaborations!
