(p.29) Chapter 2 Deciphering the policy problem
Research for Health Policy

Erica Bell

Oxford University Press

Deciphering the policy problem is a critical challenge in the preparatory work required to deliver policy-relevant research. The extent to which the evidence delivers workable solutions for clearly understood policy problems is a critical measure of the success of research for policy-makers. An accurate reading of the policy problems is a critical task in policy-relevant research because this reading will be used to drive the design of the whole research enterprise. This chapter aims to help the researcher with that task.
