Looking for tools to support using research evidence in policymaking?

Has an issue been identified in a needs assessment, priority-setting exercise, or program evaluation? Do you need to prepare an evidence brief on this issue? Clearly defining the problem is a key step that will determine how it will be addressed. The Defining a Problem Using Evidence: A SUPPORT Tool can help!
How can this SUPPORT Tool help?
The Defining a Problem Using Evidence: A SUPPORT Tool outlines how to clarify your issue using research evidence as a key step before developing options to address the issue and key implementation considerations. The tool is written for people involved in making and supporting decisions about health policies and programmes (e.g., front line staff, program managers, directors in public health).
The tool uses five guiding questions to provide a systematic and comprehensive approach clarifying an issue:
What is the problem?
• How did the problem come to attention and has this process influenced the likelihood of it being addressed?
• What indicators can be used to establish the magnitude of the problem and to measure progress in addressing it?
• What comparison can be made to establish the magnitude of the problem and to measure progress in addressing it?
• How can a problem be framed (or described) in a way that will motivate different groups?

The Defining a Problem Using Evidence: A SUPPORT Tool is one in a series of 18 tools created by the Supporting Policy relevant Reviews and Trials (SUPPORT) project, an international collaboration funded by the European Commission’s 6th Framework.
The tools have been translated into five languages and are freely available online (http://www.support-collaboration.org).
