Click image to enlarge



How do you find policies and programs that can help you increase health and equity in your community?  Are you looking for an easy-to-use database to support you in making evidence-informed decisions?  This poster and its presenters Dr. Amanda Gatewood and Dr. Bomi Kim Hirsch will introduce three efforts to enhance What Works for Health, an online resource that compiles evidence and implementation resources for more than 400 policies and programs that can improve health.  The poster will visually depict three enhancements to the What Works for Health (WWFH) resource.  These include: 1) A description of WWFH and how to use its website, featuring site enhancements such as bookmarking and new evidence rating graphics.  2) A description of current work to improve a disparity rating in WWFH to determine the potential impact of policies and programs on health equity. 3) A description of current research that applies a design thinking framework to WWFH to generate future enhancements based on online behavior patterns and decisionmaker information needs.
