All the way along through this exercise on obesity, you should have been assessing the evidence available to you and deciding if it is valuable to the task you have.
Remember to ask these questions:
- Does the evidence have anything to say about the population or issue that interests you?
- Who paid for the research?
- Does the research funder have an interest in the research results?
- What assumptions were made when the evidence was created?
At some point you will decide you have enough evidence, or cannot take time to gather more. Be sure to help others interpret the sex and gender-based analysis you have done of the evidence.
