Making Research Findings Actionable
Researchers provide health information to empower stakeholders in making evidence-based decisions. Yet, research is frequently not available, accessible, relevant, or useful, which limits its applicability for improving health systems.
In Making Research Findings Actionable: A quick reference to communicating health information for decision-making, MEASURE Evaluation outlines an approach for project coordinators to develop a communication strategy for target audiences.
Developing an information dissemination strategy is likely to increase stakeholders' research uptake. The strategy should be considered during the research planning process and address communication objectives, target audiences, appropriate channels, and assessment of use.
