Evidence-Informed Public Health Practice

Public Health Sudbury & Districts plays a key role in the development and delivery of evidence-informed public health programs and services.

Evidence-informed public health practice is the process of gathering, reviewing and disseminating current evidence from a variety of sources. These include research, community and local context, community and political preferences, and public health resources (NCCMT, http://www.nccmt.ca/pubs/FactSheet_EIDM_EN_WEB.pdf). Public Health Sudbury & Districts staff consult and collaborate with internal and external partners, community members, and decision-makers while also using the best available research evidence to respond to the needs and emerging issues in public health. Evidence-informed public health practice is achieved through the ongoing assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation of a broad range of public health programs and services.
