(p.197) Chapter 15 Getting findings into policy
Evaluating Health Promotion

Carol Tannahill

Oxford University Press

One criterion against which to measure the success of an evaluation is whether it is of use. This chapter focuses on the usefulness of findings for policy-makers. It starts by looking briefly at the concept of evidence-based policy-making and then reviews some of the ways in which policy might be influenced by research ideas and findings, illustrating these processes with an example from Scotland.
