This guide was produced by the UK Health Forum, Research and Information Services Team with support from Public Health England. Public Health practitioners require data on the information channels used by the population, which can be difficult to find. Knowledge and library services can support public health initiatives by ensuring that library and other services fit the users’ needs.
” This guide is primarily designed for knowledge and library services, but it can be used by anyone who is responsible for building and developing information products and services in public health, for example ; websites, repositories, blogs, library websites, print and electronic resources “.
It covers : Background information, methods, compiling questions, piloting/launching the assessment, analysing the results. Included are helpful action points.
Thanks to Emma Hughes and the EAHIL List ( European Association for Health Information and Libraries ) for this information.
