Evidence and Policy-Making
“[Policy-makers] considered peer-reviewed research, along
side grey literature, raw data (in their tabular presentation),
the actions or programs in other jurisdictions, the views of
experts or expert advisory committees, and opinion polls to
form the core components of evidence for policy.
For researchers and, to a lesser extent, for evidence-based
medicine proponents, the word evidence is synonymous
with research, whereas for these civil servants, evidence is
more synonymous with data, analysis, or investigation.”

delisting
Last Wednesday, I attended a rally in my
riding about delisting OHIP
services…they're shocked that the
government didn't think about how the
delisting of essential health care services
would affect the daily lives of real people
like them before they grabbed the money.

Impact of Baker/Norton:
The Mainstream
“An analysis by CIHI of the perceptions of major news
events in that period discovered that despite the large
number of media stories across the country, few Canadians
knew much about the adverse events study and its results.”
