Department: Nursing

Faculty supervisor: Dr. Anastasia Mallidou

"Understanding the process that influences health policies and their implications for health outcomes is essential. This study explores the meaning of evidence-based health policy (EBHP) among four discrete stakeholder groups: knowledge producers/researchers, policy-makers, the public, and health information technology (HIT) professionals to better understand their perspectives, insights, and experiences about EBHP, using the KhiTT conceptual framework. The proposed framework focuses on enhanced collaboration and communication between knowledge producers (researchers) and knowledge users (policy-makers) to improve the way in which health information is accumulated and health policies are formulated."
