Research suggests that health professionals experience a number of barriers when accessing, reviewing and using evidence for public health practice. Such barriers include: time constraints to produce and review evidence, limited access to credible evidence, lack of confidence in critically appraising evidence, challenges aligning evidence to local political contexts and lack of confidence in demonstrating wider wellbeing and social outcomes.
This CPD event, commissioned by Champs and delivered by Liverpool John Moores University, aims to support local authorities, NHS and third sector organisations to use evidence in practice. The event will explore local experiences, barriers and challenges and provide practical tools and resources to support health professionals.
