In the latest issue of Evidence Matters, we share news about our recent 45 and Up Study Annual Forum, including a keynote address by pre-eminent health researcher Ian Fraser, and plans for the large-scale collection of blood samples from participants, ensuring the Study will become an even richer research resource in the future. Other stories include a look at the special issue of our journal, Public Health Research & Practice, focusing on Ind igneous health successes and challenges; and research showing how our Evidence Check rapid reviews are used by policy makers.
