Kayla Atkey will join partners from the Chronic Disease Prevention Alliance of Canada (CDPAC) and the National Collaborating Centre for Healthy Public Policy (NCCHPP) in presenting Advocacy ‘how to’ – Mobilizing Evidence to Support Healthy Living Policies at the CDPAC 2016 Conference.

This workshop will allow participants to gain a better understanding of how knowledge circulates in the political sphere, and improve knowledge-sharing practices to increase the desired outcomes on healthy public policy. Participants will work with a new model to understand the processes through which public health knowledge can influence public policy. Tools to assess and act on policy readiness will be explored. Participants will reflect on their own knowledge and practices, and will come away with a greater understanding of the factors to act upon to facilitate knowledge-sharing in the political process.

The preliminary program for the CDPAC 2016 Conference, Integrated Chronic Disease Prevention: The Value Proposition (February 23-25, 2016, Toronto, ON) can be accessed through the following link:
