CHDS Seminar with Dr. Sherry Glied: From Research to Policy
January 4 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Abstract: Policy researchers are often frustrated that policymakers don’t pay attention to their findings. Policymakers complain that policy research rarely gives them the answers they need. This talk will examine the differences between how researchers and policymakers think about problems and about research findings. It will provide some suggestions about how researchers can make their work more relevant to the needs of policymakers, without sacrificing scientific integrity.
