Learning in Community: PTCC’s Learning through Evidence, Action and Reflection Networks


To help minimize missed opportunities to put research and practice-based knowledge into action, PTCC established communities of practice (CoPs) for practitioners and researchers working on specific tobacco control and other public health issues. The CoPs are a major component of a knowledge development and exchange (KDE) strategy called “Learning Through Evidence, Action and Reflection Networks” (LEARN) that aims to assist public health practitioners, their community partners and researchers to integrate research and practice-based evidence in their work. In this publication, by PTCC's LEARN team, find out how CoPs were established and selected, how to garner sponsorship and support and the outcomes from participating in a CoP.
