Roundtable Discussion: From Evidence to Policy

Thursday, August 16th
1:30 pm – 3:00 pm

This roundtable discussion will provide conference participants with an opportunity to engage with key questions under exploration by NASHP’s Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) Work Group:

1) What factors do policymakers consider when deciding if evidence merits action?

2) When action is merited, how can evidence be most effectively implemented? What policy levers, strategies, or tools can state health policymakers use to put evidence into practice?

3) How should research findings be framed to meet the specific needs of policymakers? What are the important pieces of contextual information that can make research findings more relevant to policymakers and more likely to be implemented effectively?

This roundtable is supported by a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute Engagement Award.
