Webinaire - Produire une note de breffage (policy brief) : pourquoi et comment?


Mercredi 12 juin 2019
14h à 15h (HAE)

Le Centre de collaboration nationale sur les politiques publiques et la santé (CCNPPS) vous invite à participer à un webinaire gratuit portant sur la note de breffage en tant qu'outil de partage de connaissances avec les décideurs
politiques : son efficacité, ses configurations possibles, et comment s'y prendre pour la produire.

Les notes de breffage (policy briefs) sont en vogue pour partager des connaissances avec les décideurs politiques. Mais que sait-on sur l'efficacité de ces documents? Quelles rubriques devraient-ils inclure? Est-il souhaitable qu'une note de breffage recommande une option politique en particulier? Quelle devrait être sa longueur? 

Durant ce webinaire, nous aborderons ces questions et bien d'autres en présentant les données et les meilleures pratiques repérées au moyen d'une revue de littérature. Nous proposerons également une sélection de guides pratiques pour la production de notes de breffage, de la planification à la diffusion en passant par la rédaction.

Webinar - Producing a Policy Brief: Why and How?

2 p.m. – 3 p.m. (EDT)         
Wednesday June 19, 2019    

The National Collaborating Centre for Healthy Public Policy (NCCHPP) invites you to join us for a free webinar dedicated to discussing policy briefs as tools for sharing knowledge with policy makers: their effectiveness, their possible forms, and how to produce them.

Policy briefs are popular for sharing knowledge with policy makers. But what do we know about the effectiveness of these documents? What sections should they include? Should a policy brief recommend one specific policy option? How long should it be? 

In this webinar, we will address these and many other questions by presenting data and best practices identified through a literature review. We will also suggest a selection of practical guides for the production of policy briefs, from planning, through writing, to dissemination.
