Dissemination Planning Tool from Development of a Planning Tool to Guide Dissemination of Research Results

Description

This tool assists patient safety researchers in developing a plan for disseminating research findings and products to potential users in the health care system and facilitates the translation of research into practice. It was developed to help researchers evaluate their research and develop appropriate dissemination plans, if the research is determined to have “real world” impact.

The tool offers six major elements to evaluate research and develop a dissemination plan:

  • Research findings and products—What is going to be disseminated?
  • End users—Who will apply it in practice?
  • Dissemination partners—Individuals, organizations, or networks through whom you can reach end users
  • Communication—How you convey the research outcomes
  • Evaluation—How you determine what worked
  • Dissemination work plan—Where you start
