Opening Breakfast Plenary – Data, Evidence, and Evaluation: Balancing Opportunities and Risk

Sherry Glied is featured in this official welcome and formal kick-off of the EERS annual conference.

The Commission on Evidence-Based Policymaking released its report in September 2017, and both Congress and the Executive branch have taken steps to put into place several of its recommendations. This presentation will summarize the Commission’s work and address some of the trade-offs the Commission confronted, with respect to both evidence development and the use of evidence in policy-making. It will also highlight opportunities for evaluators and researchers to increase evidence development and the implementation of evidence-based policies.
