The Portal is a comprehensive entry point for an array of resources in the area of best practices. The Portal provides decision makers with easier and informed access to published and unpublished sources related to effective and emerging best practices approaches (models and theories), methods, research evidence and practical experience. The Portal will contain news, a catalogue of best practice systematic review sites and interventions (accessible from the Portal via a search engine), a discussion board and links to other sites. The primary goal of the Portal is ease of use. Besides having a single point of access (a virtual front door) the Portal will provide a rich navigation structure.
The Portal provides a central source that consolidates currently recommended best practices. Decision makers will be able to directly access current and relevant details about best practices for health promotion and chronic disease prevention obtained from the highest quality sources across Canada and internationally.
