Canadian website shares methods and tools that work in public health

Do you want to find some tools to help you communicate to clients or colleagues about interventions? Would you like to see some tools to help you summarize and evaluate your research? Need to brush up on calculating odds ratios or understanding confidence intervals? Then you might want to visit the NCCMT’s website.

The National Collaborating Centre for Methods and Tools (NCCMT) has put together a website full of innovative, high quality, up-to-date methods and tools. It aims to share what works in public health with public health managers, professionals, public health practitioners, policy makers and researchers.

Their website has videos and webcasts in the multimedia section that help you understand research evidence, present stories from the field, and lay out the steps for Evidence-Informed Public Health. EIPH is the process of finding, appraising, distilling and disseminating the best available evidence from research and using that evidence to inform and improve health policy and practice.

You will also find a Registry of Methods and Tools section under the Resources tab. This registry has over 100 methods and tools available on topics such as communication, economic evaluation, situational assessment, and stakeholder analysis and engagement, among many others.

The National Collaborating Centre for Methods and Tools (NCCMT) is one of six National Collaborating Centres for Public Health in Canada. The NCCMT provides leadership and expertise in sharing what works in public health.
