Stream 4 - Translation of evidence into policy and practice

Emma Esdaile's project sits within Stream 4 of the EPOCH CRE – translation of evidence into policy and practice. This project is focused on the policy levers and public health infrastructure available in New South Wales to translate research into practice. The first stage of this project (currently underway) is to undertake a policy mapping exercise within New South Wales to identify key policy levers as they apply to childhood obesity prevention and to identify gaps. The following stages of the project will involve engaging with stakeholders to best take advantage of identified policy levers to translate evidence-based research into practice and health systems.
