Description: 

Evidence based policy and practice involve a partnership between researchers, advocacy organizations, policy makers and practitioners. Many researchers hope to change policy or practice with their research, but most are unclear about how to successfully achieve this goal.During this insightful Webinar, your expert presenter will use examples from her own experience including: translating research into policy and practice to help researchers identify an appropriate policy or practice audience; clarify what aspects of their research could be used in programs and policy; and successfully work with policy makers and practitioners to move their findings into concrete practice.For more information or registation, click here.
