There are numerous interventions delivered across populations which potentially contribute to changes in population health.  Applying experimental methods to these interventions is rarely possible, but there are other opportunities to generate evidence from these natural experiments.   This seminar will use examples of natural experiments to outline the rationale for, methods and challenges for natural experiments.  The seminar will end with consideration of how data from natural experiments can be produced for use in decision making through evidence synthesis.
