The National Collaborating Centre for Methods and Tools (NCCMT) and health-evidence.ca have been receiving requests for evidence to support public health units to prepare for their upcoming planning cycle. In particular, many requests have been received with respect to planning for chronic disease programs. In order to support access to evidence that has been assessed for quality and facilitate decision-making for health units, the NCCMT and health-evidence.ca have partnered to provide searches relevant to chronic disease focused literature.
To create this document, searches were conducted in health-evidence.ca to identify reviews related to chronic disease prevention. All reviews in health-evidence.ca have been assessed for methodological quality, and those assessed as being of strong or moderate methodological quality were included in the results.
