Evidence Based Practice is cited as the basis of all our public health and healthcare decisions, but what does that mean in practice? How do we know which evidence to use? When there is so much research evidence, why is there still so much controversy over the best course of public health action? The module covers how to formulate an answerable question, access, appraise, and use the evidence on a public health issue.

The purpose of this module is: a) To enable you to read most of the relevant literature with understanding of the statistical content. b) To permit you to carry out some analysis of uni-variate and bi-variate data. And c) to prepare you for more complex forms of statistical analysis if you wish. As most of the calculations are done by computer the only pre-requisite knowledge is an understanding of simple arithmetic.
