Policy Readiness Tool

Use this tool to assess a community or organization’s readiness for policy change. Learn strategies to encourage the adoption of healthy public policy in these places.

The Policy Readiness Tool was developed with support from the Alberta Policy Coalition for Cancer Prevention (APCCP; 2009-2011)1. The APCCP is housed in the School of Public Health at the University of Alberta (Edmonton, AB). The APCCP represents a broad range of practitioners, policy-makers, researchers and community organizations who have come together to coordinate efforts, generate evidence and advocate for policy change to reduce incidence/prevalence of cancer and chronic disease in Alberta.
