Scoping and setting evidence priorities for public health decision making: ways forward for the Cochrane Collaboration Professor Elizabeth Waters Co-Director, Health Promotion and Public Health Field School of Population Health University of Melbourne

Outcomes of public health investments Population health improvements Reduction in inequalities Population shift Working with disadvantaged communities Strengthened and supportive environments Ecological development, support and advancement Supported communities and people Effective and equitable health care care systems Healthy public policies Effective surveillance and monitoring programs Context: fixed, if not reducing budgets

Population health improvements

Reduction in inequalities

Population shift

Working with disadvantaged communities

Strengthened and supportive environments

Ecological development, support and advancement

Supported communities and people

Effective and equitable health care care systems

Healthy public policies

Effective surveillance and monitoring programs

Context: fixed, if not reducing budgets

Current public health context Non communicable diseases with common societal and development related determinants eg. obesity, mental health, dental caries, child injury. Climate change and non sustainable developments Unequal burden of disease Use of health technologies Configuration of health resources change as people live longer Pandemic control …zoonotic public health Health systems and sociopolitical systems Globalization, westernization and homogenization

Non communicable diseases with common societal and development related determinants eg. obesity, mental health, dental caries, child injury.

Climate change and non sustainable developments

Unequal burden of disease

Use of health technologies

Configuration of health resources change as people live longer

Pandemic control …zoonotic public health

Health systems and sociopolitical systems

Globalization, westernization and homogenization

Who are the decision makers Government: Health Transport Planning and infrastructure Education Social-welfare Housing Non government….

Government:

Health

Transport

Planning and infrastructure

Education

Social-welfare

Housing

Non government….

Evidence for intersectoral decision makers – what evidence is relevant? Health -> systematic reviews, history, experience Transport -> private sector and political influence Education -> systematic reviews, history, experience Industry -> financial Housing -> professional expertise, history Agriculture -> primary research, private sector influence

Health -> systematic reviews, history, experience

Transport -> private sector and political influence

Education -> systematic reviews, history, experience

Industry -> financial

Housing -> professional expertise, history

Agriculture -> primary research, private sector influence

Can Cochrane Collaboration afford not to meet these needs? Strategic value of Cochrane Collaboration in public health decision making Identifies needs on content as well as form Resource investment in public health evidence and knowledge substantive – but product and approach needs to meet needs of the audience

Alternatives to Cochrane Health Technology Assessment Community Guide – CDC International Union of Health Promotion and Education Effectiveness Project Separately funded reviews – common topics across the world

Stakeholder engagement and topic prioritization process Example: International stakeholders: WHO, PAHO, CDC, Global Forum for Health Research Mapping of CDSR against WHO Health report Identification of gaps of evidence for decision making 26 nominated ‘priority’ – important topics that aren’t on the Cochrane Library

Example:

International stakeholders: WHO, PAHO, CDC, Global Forum for Health Research

Mapping of CDSR against WHO Health report

Identification of gaps of evidence for decision making

26 nominated ‘priority’ – important topics that aren’t on the Cochrane Library

Important PH topics Effectiveness of community-building interventions to improve physical, social and mental health Effectiveness of healthy cities, municipalities or spaces projects in reducing cardiovascular disease risk factors Effectiveness of physical exercise to improve mental health Effectiveness of marketing strategies to promote healthy eating in young people. Effectiveness of interventions using the WHO Health Promoting School framework to improve health and academic achievements among school students Interventions to improve breastfeeding options for women in employment Interventions that employ a combination of environmental, social and educational strategies to prevent infectious diseases such as malaria, dengue and diarrhoea Interventions addressing gender disparities in family food distribution to improve child nutrition

Effectiveness of community-building interventions to improve physical, social and mental health

Effectiveness of healthy cities, municipalities or spaces projects in reducing cardiovascular disease risk factors

Effectiveness of physical exercise to improve mental health

Effectiveness of marketing strategies to promote healthy eating in young people.

Effectiveness of interventions using the WHO Health Promoting School framework to improve health and academic achievements among school students

Interventions to improve breastfeeding options for women in employment

Interventions that employ a combination of environmental, social and educational strategies to prevent infectious diseases such as malaria, dengue and diarrhoea

Interventions addressing gender disparities in family food distribution to improve child nutrition

Benefits Increased awareness and value by stakeholders Close strategic alignment with where decisions need to be made to improve population health outcomes Articulation of complexity of evidence sought to answer public health challenges Evidence base by which to examine capacity of Cochrane to respond to public health policy and program decision making

Increased awareness and value by stakeholders

Close strategic alignment with where decisions need to be made to improve population health outcomes

Articulation of complexity of evidence sought to answer public health challenges

Evidence base by which to examine capacity of Cochrane to respond to public health policy and program decision making

Mobilizing efforts to complete priority reviews Identification of ‘priority’/absent/important reviews Aligning topics with CRG’s: existing CRG’s usually have single intervention – single outcome scope Strong positive communication required to facilitate reviews Complex reviews – large resources and reviewers with content and methods required

Identification of ‘priority’/absent/important reviews

Aligning topics with CRG’s: existing CRG’s usually have single intervention – single outcome scope

Strong positive communication required to facilitate reviews

Complex reviews – large resources and reviewers with content and methods required

Strategic vision for CC and priorities Re-frame priorities as contemporary, important, relevant and useful reviews Regularly going through prioritisation process is useful in ensuring relevance Cross entity engagement through the collaboration extremely useful – contribution of those engaged with decision makers and organisational processes essential to high quality content and product Eg. policy ‘cameos’ for WHO Global Commission on Social Determinants of Health, linking context, evidence and policy
