Partnering to build legal mapping data and evaluate the impact of laws and policies on health. We will work with you to create empirical legal data that can be used in evaluation studies or in practice. See examples at, including our work with CDC on prior authorization policies for Medicaid reimbursement of ADHD, with the National Nurse-Led Care Consortium on nurse practitioner scope of practice laws, with ChangeLab Solutions on Baby-Friendly Hospital laws, and others!

Training and technical assistance for policy surveillance. The Center’s robust policy surveillance methods training program can be applied to any topic or level of policy to build empirical legal data. Our team will walk you through the steps of the process to get you started as you create policy surveillance data on your own. Visit to see some of our prepared training modules, sign up for a live webinar, or contact us for more information.

Identifying and defining legal needs. Using the Five Essential Public Health Law Services Framework, our team will conduct a strategic audit to assess the strength of current public health law infrastructure and the quality of public health law services impacting a specific area of public health to make evidence-based recommendations for action.
