We are looking for health services researchers and dissemination experts to contribute to Work Package 5. Find out more below.

Development of a unified user-friendly dissemination framework to inform and guide the dissemination process to achieve greater research impact (September 2020 – June 2025).

OVERVIEW

Less than a third of emerging health service research evidence is translated to policy or practice (1). While there are over 100 models, theories and frameworks to guide researchers’ dissemination strategies, it is difficult for researchers to know where to start or how to select the most appropriate resource for their research.

Work Package 5 of CHARMER is unifying existing models for dissemination to create one user-friendly dissemination framework. We are also creating a guidance document detailing how we have used this framework and its associated dissemination activities throughout CHARMER. Once complete, we will make this document available for anyone to use in future research projects to inform and guide the dissemination process to achieve greater research impact.

PATIENT AND PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT

This work package is being led by Katherine Murphy, a PPI co-applicant on the CHARMER research programme. PPI members David Taylor and Jennie Griffiths are also key contributors of the dissemination working group, advising on the development and refinement of the dissemination framework and CHARMER’s dissemination activities.

TAKE PART – TESTING THE DISSEMINATION FRAMEWORK

We are looking for health services researchers and dissemination experts to test the prototype dissemination framework for its usability and contribute to the resulting manuscript. We will ask you to complete two activities:

1. Assess our prototype framework to identify any missing elements or other refinements. This is expected to take no more than 10 minutes.

2. Attend a 1-hour online workshop (taking place in June), in which you will collaborate with other experts and end users to test the dissemination framework.
