Evidence-informed decision making: Using research evidence to inform practice

23 March @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm AEDT

Evidence-Informed Decision Making

Evidence-informed decision making: Using research evidence to inform practice

Presenters: Ken Knight, Amanda Paton, Beth McCann. Facilitated by Joanna Schwarzman
Wednesday, 23 March 2022 1:00–2:00pm AEDT

The child, family and community welfare sector is increasingly being asked to use evidence to inform their decisions about service and program design and delivery to support better outcomes for children and families. Research evidence can be integrated with other sources of evidence such as practitioner expertise and client experience to implement an evidence-informed approach to decision making in practice.

This webinar will:
• introduce frameworks and evidence about what helps to support research use within organisations
• discuss the barriers and enablers of integrating research into practice and provide examples of approaches to support evidence-informed practice
• provide examples of how organisations and practitioners have successfully combined research evidence with other types of knowledge to create impact or change.
This webinar is designed for program planners and practice managers involved in practice and organisational decision making. Practitioners looking for opportunities to strengthen evidence-informed decision making in their organisation, and researchers wanting to improve implementation of research findings will also find it useful.

This webinar builds on these CFCA short articles:
• What is an evidence-informed approach to practice and why is it important? | Child Family Community Australia (
• Using research to answer practice questions | Child Family Community Australia (
• Creating an organisational culture for evidence-informed practice | Child Family Community Australia (
We encourage you to test your system before the webinar and read our Frequently Asked Questions. A recording of this presentation will be made available shortly after the broadcast.
