Evidence from Elsewhere guide to secondary evidence

Evidence from Elsewhere coverThis guide is for anyone in the third sector who wants to use secondary evidence to inform, influence and improve policy or practice.

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.

The guide has been produced by the Knowledge Translation Network, of which CHEX is a member.
