Editors' Note: Driving Better Health Policy: "It's the Evidence, Stupid"
In this paper, Dr. Baicker argues that researchers need to maintain a separation between their values and their role as health services researchers who generate and interpret evidence. She states that “the role of researchers and policy analysts as evidence generators and translators is fundamentally incompatible with the role of advocate,” although “there is certainly an important role for advocates in our system” (Baicker 2018).
