Standards for Identifying Evidence-based Practices in Reproductive Health Webinar

This webinar, based on work conducted by the STEP UP consortium, the Evidence Project, the High Impact Practices (HIP) initiative, and the Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research, addressed use of appropriate standards of evidence for recommending best practices in family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH). The webinar also focused on generation and synthesis of evidence that can inform the production of HIP briefs and practice recommendations that go beyond considering only Randomized Control Trials as strong evidence.

Dr. Ian Askew will discuss recommendations that emerged from a consultation on developing standards of evidence for recommending FP/RH practices and Dr. Nhan Tran will discuss the benefits and challenges of implementation research that links researchers and implementers as partners in conducting research. Dr. Patrick Aboagye will serve as discussant from his perspective as an evidence user in the Ghana Health Service.
