More on evidence!

Publishing valuable environmental health research can be as simple as writing up that job you did last Tuesday.

UK Environmental Health Research Network

The UK Health Prevention First Forum  have produced a report on the role of case studies as evidence in public health (January 2016).

Their research found case studies to help capture real experiences of public health work in specific times and places and reveal stories about interventions.  The Forum concludes that the uniqueness of case studies is that they capture local knowledge in ways that cannot be captured by other means in complex and varied contexts. They add that guidelines and templates that enhance the format, replicability and assessment would help improve status.

With a closer focus in environmental health, Stephen Battersby had produced a report on local authority use of enforcement powers in housing cases which can be accessed via EHN-online.

Each of these new reports are appended to our open access pages.
