Research Toolkit - Disseminating and Closing Research


Disseminating and Closing Research

Sharing research results is both an obligation and an
opportunity. Since there are many considerations when a study concludes,
we’ve provided several resources to help with the publication process,
ideas for dissemination beyond publishing in a research journal,
guidance for managing study data, and specific steps to facilitate the
formal closure of a study.

Latest Resources

From the Examining Community-Institutional Partnerships for
Prevention Research Group. The curriculum is intended as a tool for use
by community-academic partnerships that are using or planning to use a
Community-based Participatory Research (CBPR) approach to improving
health. It can be used by partnerships that are just forming as well as
existing partnerships. It is intended for use by health professions
faculty and researchers, students and post-doctoral fellows, staff of
community-based organizations, and staff of public health agencies at
all skill levels.

Research Partnerships: A Skill-Building Curriculum. 2006.

Home of the online Dissemination and Implementation Planning Tool
- a multifunctional and interactive web-based tool developed for use in
cancer communication interventions spanning prevention, early
detection, and treatment.  This site also includes a dissemination and
implementation resource library and a narrative library: freely
accessible online collection of video vignettes for researchers and
practitioners interested in disseminating and implementing
evidence-based practices, programs, and tools.  Website is maintained by
the Institute for Health Research at Kaiser Permanente, with content
produced and funded by NCI-supported Centers of Excellence in Cancer
Communication Research program, formed in 2009.

The Center for the Advancement of Collaborative Strategies in
Health has developed ideas and tools to enhance partnerships, including
an adaptable tool to measure strength and cohesion in a given group. The
Partnership Self-Assessment tool, scoring instructions and a
coordinator's guide are all freely available for download, along with a
published article on the concepts underlying synergy.

Funded by the Canadian Institute of Health Research and created
in 2000 to serve as a repository of resources, this website is geared
towards individuals who want to learn about the science and practice of
knowledge translation.  Includes the interactive Knowledge-To-Action
Cycle model with detailed component information, other. ther conceptual
models and theories, and learning resources.

This valuable resource is designed to facilitate dissemination
and use of rural health services research findings. The toolkit is very
straightforward, easy-to-use and practical reference guide and
highlights common methods of packaging and dissemination information
that were identified as important by key target audiences (e.g., policy
makers, national health related organizations). Click here to download.
