The workshop focused on practice, building on the themes of the past three years. The theme was: using evidence to influence decision-making. Inspired by a 2016 systematic review on Evidence-Informed Decision-Making, speakers gave updates on the influence of major research initiatives in the sector and discussion groups exchanged experience of research use in practice.
Here are the speakers’ presentations:
Andrew Morris Evidence Informed Decision-Making

Patricia Odell Education and Training Foundation professional standards
Anna Douglas Anna Douglas – City & Islington College
