About the Webinar

Truly studying the implementation and impact of public health policies on communities, organizations, systems, and individuals often requires an indepth understanding of the scope and components of the law or policy itself. This is particularly true of studies that examine multicomponent laws and policies across jurisdictions—where understanding nuances of the laws and policies within each jurisdiction are necessary for an "apples-to-apples" analysis of their impact on the outcomes of interest.

Drawing from the obesity prevention and tobacco control fields, this webinar will review the design and analysis considerations for assessing the implementation and impact of laws and policies on community, organizational, and individual-level outcomes. It will also seek to:

  1. Review the primary approaches to "measuring" law and policy for use in implementation and impact studies
  2. Highlight why it is necessary to ensure a “conceptual match” between the policy and outcome measures
  3. Review considerations for using existing or developing new policy data sources for use in implementation and impact studies.
