Here are four new resources that we like, relevant to policy and practice.

'Finding evidence' online course (IRISS)

This online course shares the methods that IRISS uses to put together an evidence review, so you can apply them to your own work. It focuses on the skills you need to find and use evidence: how to define a topic, where to find useful sources and how to search, evaluate the evidence and finally, learn how to share the findings. The course takes about 6 hours to complete, which you can work through in your own time.
