Webinar: Thursday 11 April 8hEST/14hCET - Expanding the range of evidence used to inform health decision making--Assessing unConventional Evidence (ACE) Tool

2 April, 2024

Dear HIFA Colleagues

How can local evidence, professional/tacit knowledge, programme/policy descriptions and evaluations be used for health decision making? To use the information in such ‘unconventional’ source materials in evidence syntheses or other decision support products, we need to assess the limitations and strengths of these sources. This webinar will describe and discuss the Assessing unConventional Evidence (ACE) tool – a new tool to assess the strengths and limitations of these source materials.

Please join us for the webinar on Thursday April 11th at 14h00 CET to learn more about the ACE Tool and share ideas on how this tool can inform and strengthen your work.

The session will be held in English with interpretation into French and Spanish.
