Written by the Knowledge Translation Network ‘Evidence from Elsewhere: Gathering, analysing and using other people’s evidence’ guides anyone in the third sector who wants to use secondary evidence to inform, influence and improve policy or practice, or both, through the process of using secondary evidence.
Using other people’s evidence can be useful to fill gaps in your evidence or to help make a case for a new service or project.
The guide is divided into four parts:
- Exploring the importance of secondary evidence
- Key steps to gathering and making sense of secondary evidence
- Top tips to developing your own approach
- A range of resources for accessing secondary evidence.
