Bridging the Gap: The Use of Research Evidence in Policy Development

Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research (AHFMR) HTA Initiative #18.

This paper has two specific objectives:

  • to describe some of the challenges of using research evidence to inform healthcare policy making; and
  • to provide policy makers and researchers with a framework or tool that would identify and facilitate the use of research evidence and other information in healthcare policy making.


NOTE: In 2006 the Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research HTA unit moved to IHE. Documents produced in and prior to 2006 have different formats; the format was determined by the agency for which the document was produced.
