Short course: Evidence Informed Decision making: The Art, Science and Complexity of Knowledge Translation

5 weeks online Short Course: 6 April – 7 May 2021 
Evidence Informed Decision-making has become a hot topic particularly during COVID-19. The media, the public, practitioners and researchers alike have asked critical questions throughout the last few months.
• What constitutes “evidence?” and “Whose evidence matters?!”
• How do we distinguish “good” evidence from “fake news?”
• Why doesn’t good evidence always lead to good decisions?
• How are decisions-made?
• How do we effectively engage key stakeholders? 


The Centre for Evidence-based Health Care, Department of Global Health, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Stellenbosch University, offers this 5 week online short course to provide researchers with a comprehensive understanding of Evidence-Informed Decision Making and the role of Knowledge Translation to advance this. The practical nature of the course means that delegates will complete 2 critical outputs relevant for their current research or projects (A stakeholder analysis and an engagement strategy for a key stakeholder).
In person virtual contact sessions once a week - Tuesdays 2pm-3:30pm SAST (except the last week Tues 4 May and Fri 7 May 2-3pm SAST) Facilitators: Dr. Nasreen Jessani (Stellenbosch University, Johns Hopkins University) and Ms. Lynn Hendricks (Stellenbosch University ,KU Leuven)
