It provides the skills of critical analysis and appraisal (and the depth of knowledge and reflection) required by contemporary practitioners to inform and influence decision-making in public health practice.

Evidence based policy and practice is a key area of practice for health and social care and there are numerous accessible textbooks that provide guides to principles and methods. However, this text takes a different approach with a focus on decision-making and the types of information that practitioners need in order to take action at a local level to develop better policies/programmes in the best possible way.It explores the questions that practitioners pose (and need answered), and how research evidence as well as other forms of evidence can inform those decisions.

The book reflects on the accepted wisdom of evidence-based practice and clarifies and explores how we build knowledge and enhance the evidence base about what it takes to improve health. It discusses what works in health improvement but also moves beyond the traditional preoccupation with effectiveness to examine the related concepts of efficiency, acceptability, quality and equity, as well as the potential conflicts and synergies between these principles and how they are included in decision-making processes.The book is intended to be developmental and should be read as a complete text.

It is in the same style as the previous texts combining an accessible, user-friendly but challenging approach with well established, interactive features. Each chapter has a common format: overview, learning outcomes, introduction, four further sections, final section on challenges for public health/health promotion, worked example on children and healthy eating (offering a demonstration of how this approach to evidence based practice can be applied to extend the usefulness of an existing systematic review).

In the practitioner talking feature of the last text they reflect on key aspects of finding and using information.
