Engaging with Decision Makers: Issue Briefs for Policy and Practice

Decision-makers, whether at the household, organizational, community or network level make decisions in complex environments. With the multitude of information that impacts their decisions, its critical for researchers to not only understand the complexities of the decision-making environment but also to appreciate the efforts and strategies that can be employed to contribute to those decisions with evidence. 

The aim of this short course is to provide a nuanced understanding of the context and processes that affect decision-making with the ultimate aim to produce an issue brief to influence a chosen decision maker. 

KT short courses are offered by the Stellenbosch University Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and are open to postgraduate students, faculty and other interested participants external to the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences. Short course participants will receive a certificate of attendance and CPD credit if requested.

Duration and dates: April/May
