This half-day workshop, entitled "A method for producing knowledge syntheses on public policies that are both rigorous and relevant to policy makers - Hands-on workshop" was held in Montréal on June 19, 2011.

The objective of this session was to enable participants to apply this method, including: choosing a relevant policy for study; analyzing it; performing a literature review (in a way that differs from literature reviews on simple interventions); and organizing deliberative processes. 

The presentation from this workshop was one of several held from 2010 to 2013. While we have chosen to leave this document available for downloading, we recommend a more recent (and improved-upon) version from JASP 2012, available here.

Please note that the NCCHPP is organizing other training workshops on how to apply the method that we have developed. We are holding a day-long workshop at the Journées annuelles de santé publique - JASP (annual public health days) in Montreal on November 30, 2011. This event, like the CPHA workshop, will be fully bilingual with simultaneous translation available.

Other events in different regions of Canada will be announced throughout 2011-2012.
