The Centre for Primary Health Care and Equity (CPHCE) supports NSW Health staff and others who are involved in commissioning, conducting or using the results of health research or evaluation.
Below are topics we chose that are important for prevention research in primary and public health. For each topic, we identify free online resources that are suitable for people in the field.
If there is a free resource that you have found useful and would like to share, please let us know at email@example.com.
The glossary of concepts underpinning evidence-based public health helps you to understand the terminology used in evaluation and research texts.
This section provides an overview of prevention and health promotion that will be useful in determining the need, scope and focus of research and how the results can be used.
