Best Practices Work Group, Centre for Health Promotion, University of Toronto

From the website: "Since 1996, Michael Goodstadt and Barbara Kahan, working in collaboration with the Centre's Best Practices Work Group, have provided leadership in exploring the potential benefits and risks associated with taking a best practices approach to health promotion. The Best Practices Work Group, whose members come from public health units, community health centres, hospitals, NGOs and community groups, provincial and federal government, and academic institutions, was created as the result of an International Symposium on the Effectiveness of Health Promotion organized by the Centre for Health Promotion in June, 1996. The Best Practices Work Group recently merged with a work group that focused on the challenge of consolidating the evidence regarding the effectiveness of health promotion and an Evaluation Work Group."
