On May 8-10, 2018, MSFHR is co-hosting Fuse 2018 alongside the BC Ministry of Health, the Public Health Association of BC, and the United Kingdom's Fuse Centre for Translational Research in Public Health.
Research evidence for healthy public policy: Learning across jurisdictions and sectors will be held at the Coast Coal Harbour Hotel in Vancouver, BC May 8-10, 2018.
Fuse 2018 will explore the challenges faced when using evidence, including conflicting evidence, in policy-making. A panel of international experts will discuss ways of producing, integrating and communicating research evidence for policy-making that promotes and protects the health of citizens. Together, we will explore the use of research evidence in public health policymaking from around the world to discover what’s working, what’s not, and what are the trends, issues, and policy-related challenges across jurisdictions and sectors.
Fuse 2018 is open to researchers, policy-makers, public health practitioners and other research users with an interest in public and population health. To facilitate conversation and knowledge exchange amongst attendees registration is limited.
