  1. The impact of social science research on health policy.

    Article, Communication - En anglais

    International conference on the social sciences and medicine. Balatonfüred HUN, 1994/10/10.

    The relationship between research and health policy is discussed from a policy process perspective, describing communication problems in the course of policy formulation, implementation and evaluation.

    Policy process is often expected by researchers to be rational, having logical sequence of steps and the objective evaluation of alternatives based on scientific knowledge.

    In fact, policies are often formulated without clear problem identification or based on wrong assumption.

    The timing of research and policy-making differs.

    Policy-makers need to respond quickly.

    Evaluations may be regarded by politiaans as embarrassing if they point to a need for significant change.
