This report summarises the work undertaken in the 2014-15 financial year looking at the role case studies play as evidence in public health. 
Case studies are used in evidence-based public health and are generally considered useful in public health. Case studies vary in quality and content and are difficult to find and critically appraise. 
This study used a mixed methods approach; a literature review, a content analysis of a sample of case studies and a small number of qualitative interviews on the use and usefulness of case studies. The aim of the study was to define, explore and make recommendations around 
the nature and use of case studies in public health.
