Policy Press

This chapter returns to one of the assumptions made at the start, that an evidence-informed approach to both policy and practice is worthwhile. It examines how to test such a proposition. It identifies three different perspectives — tracking from completed research through to actual and potential consequences; focusing on understanding the use of research in research user communities; and assessing initiatives that have been designed to increase research impacts. It elaborates each of these perspectives, based on the discussions and models laid out in earlier chapters.

Keywords:   evidence-informed approach, policy, practice, research user communities, research impacts
