Navigating the Translation and Dissemination of PHSSR Findings: A Decision Guide for Researchers – Academy Health – 2013

Extract from the foreword

“The U.S. health system is undergoing a critically transformative process. The public health community acknowledges this unique opportunity—the chance to be leaders, or ‘chief health strategists,’ in guiding the development of a new health system that supports prevention and community-based approaches to health. Yet there certainly is no clarity with regard to the role of public health in this rapidly evolving health care environment, and specifically the role of governmental public health agencies. The emerging field of public health services and systems research (PHSSR) has the potential to inform this health system transformation—it studies the impact of different approaches to organizing, delivering, and paying for public health services and examines strategies for improving the quality and
performance of the U.S. public health system.”

Knowledge to Action: An End-of-Grant Knowledge Translation Casebook – Canadian Institutes of Health Research

“Foreword

New knowledge emerging from research holds great potential to expand horizons and create significant impact. Knowledge translation (KT) is about harnessing that potential and bridging the gap between what we know and what we do.

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) views KT as an essential component in improving the health of Canadians and has made it one of the cornerstones of its mandate. It is by moving research into action that the true benefits of our investment in health research can be realized.

CIHR has identified two broad categories of knowledge translation. The first, integrated KT, is an effective way of doing research that involves collaboration between researchers and knowledge users at every stage of the research process – from shaping the research question, to interpreting the results, to disseminating the research findings into practice. This co-production of research increases the likelihood that the results of a project will be relevant to end-users, thereby improving the possibility of uptake and application.

The compilation of case studies found in this publication concerns itself with the second and equally important category of knowledge translation, end-of-grant KT. End-of-grant KT refers to the dissemination of findings generated from research once a project is completed, depending on the extent to which there are mature findings appropriate for dissemination. Researchers who undertake traditional dissemination activities such as publishing in peer-reviewed journals and presenting their research at conferences and workshops are engaging in end-of-grant knowledge translation.”
