ABSTRACT:

Considerable attention is being given to the use of research evidence to inform public policy making.

Participants relied on a range of "global" and "local" evidence types throughout the policy development phase. Global research evidence was used to raise awareness about problems associated with psychotropic medication use. Local evidence helped...
