STREAM 1: ‘Finding the gaps’

Stream 1 has four community settings: schools, sporting groups, childcare & early education centres and workplaces.

Q1: What are the evidence-practice gaps in COMMUNITY SETTING CDP SCHOOL and Sport group community settings?

To maximise the likelihood of public health improvement, governments should invest in programs that address an identified ‘evidence – practice’ gap. That is, investment should be reserved for initiatives with strong evidence of effect and which are not already routinely implemented. Most research to date, however, has focused on describing the effects of interventions (evidence assessment), and not the extent of their implementation in practice (practice gap assessment). We will undertake a program of work to identify international and Australian practice gaps in schools, sporting groups, childcare & early education centres and workplace community settings.
