In this episode we focus on evidence use as compared to production and mobilisation. We consider how to measure whether evidence has made a difference and how to track its use after it has been handed over to practice or policy users.
Jo Casebourne played a prominent role in the What Works movement in the UK, leading one of their centres, the Early Intervention Foundation. She is now Chief Executive of Foundations, the What Works Centre for Children and Families and we talk to her about what she's learned during her career in evidence use and how these lessons can be applied elsewhere.
