The Alliance for Useful Evidence is a network, hosted by Nesta, that champions the smarter use of evidence in social policy and practice.
The Alliance is producing a guide to the issues, and good practice, for local area decision-makers interested in evidence-informed commissioning. It will be aimed at Health and Social Care commissioners, to encourage people who already are thinking about evidence, but who would benefit from tips on what’s appropriate and how to use it alongside other decision-making factors. We will examine the challenges and potential solutions to evidence-informed commissioning through case studies.
It is likely the publication will be in a format similar to the Using Evidence in Scrutiny guide, but we are open to suggestions.
If you are interested in this project and have experience (good or bad) of using evidence in commissioning, please contact Pippa Coutts with ideas what you’d like to see in an Evidence and Commissioning Guide and potential case studies: .
