Abstract Introduction: Public health funding is finite so there is an imperative to ensure that funds are spent on effective interventions that make best use of resources. New and innovative interventions need to be assessed. Established interventions must be monitored to provide local assurance that they are yielding the expected outcomes. Despite this imperative, barriers remain to the effective evaluation and monitoring of public health activities. These barriers may relate to organisation or culture, to technical or methodological issues, or to workforce capacity or capability. Methods: This poster will describe national and local action undertaken by Public Health England and the School of Public Health Research to address barriers to evaluation of public health activities with a particular focus on building local workforce capacity and capability. Nationally, core slide-sets and videos by leading academics have been developed. Locally, academic led workshops have provided training in evaluation methods. The workshops have also provided opportunities for frontline practitioners to discuss live evaluation issues with academic experts. Results: Feedback from workshop participants in the East of England showed an increase in confidence in evaluating public health interventions or programmes from 20%'confident' and 0% 'very confident' to 43% 'confident' and 10% 'very confident'. Next steps: Planned next steps to help to further embed a culture of evaluation and impact assessment across the population health system will be presented.
