Effectiveness evidence briefings

These are a new range of products produced by Evidene for Action (EfA). They provide a summary of the best available evidence for a number of health improvement subject areas. In addition to providing an evidence update, the briefings also provide a short commentary on relevant Scottish policy together with examples of what local implementation might look like.

The briefings are updated by NHS Health Scotland’s EfA team at least every three months, so at any point in time they provide an up to date, comprehensive summary of the evidence produced by the major evidence providers together with key policy updates. Initially, briefings will be produced for alcohol, food, physical activity and tobacco but this will be widened out in time to include other topics, settings and lifestages.
