How to Disseminate Your Research: From Planning to Action
Rhoda Meador, BCTR

Monday, November 14, 2016
8:30-10:00 AM
G87 MVR Hall

To be most effective, dissemination strategies should be incorporated into the earliest stages of a research study. This hands-on, participatory workshop will examine key strategies for dissemination. Participants will work through the process of creating their own dissemination plan, including consideration of several key questions:

  • What are the goals and objectives of the dissemination effort?
  • Who are the target audiences for the research?
  • Who would be interested in learning about the study findings?
  • What is the most effective way to reach each audience?
  • What dissemination methods are best suited to your research?
  • When should each aspect of the dissemination plan occur?

Researchers are increasingly conducting studies in community settings and applying for grants that require documentation of real-world impact. Indeed, some funders now require components such as dissemination plans, stakeholder engagement, or community participation. To meet these new demands, researchers may wish to collaborate with non-academic groups and craft research questions and results that inform practice or policy. This series of interactive workshops shares the Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research’s extensive experience conducting research in real-world settings and translating empirical findings into practice. Each workshop addresses a key challenge that researchers face in doing translational research and provides practical tools for overcoming obstacles to conducting effective translational research.
