Evidence can help decide which interventions, initiatives, improvements and innovations offer the best value.
This guide has been developed by the Strategy Unit for the Midlands Decision Support Network. It is written for analysts who are seeking to triangulate findings with the wider evidence base. But it is suitable for anyone who is thinking about how to use evidence to inform decisions about health and care.
The guide begins with an introduction to evidence and how it can inform decision making, before taking you through the steps involved to find and analyse evidence, with signposting to further resources and support.
It begins with an introduction to evidence and how it should be used, followed by sections on:
- how does evidence inform decision making?
- how do I find and use evidence?
- what pitfalls should I avoid?
- where can I get help and support?
The guide will be further developed over time.
