The Canadian Population Health Initiative (CPHI) of the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), in partnership with the Institute of Population and Public Health (IPPH) of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), produced a casebook that showcases population health intervention research (PHIR) in Canada.
The overarching theme that guides the research cases presented in the casebook is health equity. The content is organized and presented within three broad categories: exploring implementation processes that support PHIR; evaluating setting-specific programs; and researching multi-component, community-wide interventions. Within these categories, the research cases explore the theoretical and methodological approaches used in the field of PHIR; demonstrate impact and lessons learned; illustrate uptake by program planners and policy decision-makers; and identify implications for research, policy and practice.
