A new evidence base for tackling complex problems
Canadian public health leader Professor Diane Finegood speaks about the need for a new evidence base to tackle complex problems.
Professor Finegood, President and CEO of the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research, presents solutions for complex problems and challenges us to think about all the levels of a system in this webinar. Levels range from our deeply held beliefs that are hard to change through to goals about what we should change. And while feedback loops can be powerful interventions, they are mostly at the structural level, we need more data collection in other levels in the system if we are to move towards evidence-based solutions based on a systems paradigm.
