How to Disseminate Your Research: A Step-by-Step Guide
Rhoda Meador, Cornell Institute for Translational Research on Aging

Wednesday, November 7, 2018
12:00-1:30 p.m.
ILR Conference Center, Room 423



Dissemination should be incorporated into the earliest stages of a study and continue throughout the research process. In this interactive workshop, participants will create their own dissemination plan, including consideration of several key issues:

  • Clear communication
  • Identifying target audiences
  • Strengthening research partnerships

Dr. Rhoda Meador has been involved in numerous educational programs and research activities that bridge the gap between research and practice. Currently her research focuses on improving health and social systems to support the social engagement of older people. Dr. Meador has a Ph.D. in Consumer and Family Sciences from Iowa State University, an M.S.in adult learning from Marshall University and certification as a distance-learning specialist from the University of Wisconsin. She is the former Director of the Ithaca College Gerontology Institute

Part of an interactive workshop series

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.

Scholars train for research in real-world settings

By Sheri Hall for the Cornell Chronicle

Thirty-three researchers from across the globe visited the Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research (BCTR) last month to learn how to conduct research through community partnerships that will inform real-world practices and decisions.

The center’s first Translational Research Summer Institute, which took place June 20-22, offered intensive training, discussion and reflection on conducting research in real-world settings such as service agencies, health care institutions and community organizations. It covered two main topics: building constructive partnerships with community organizations and using data to tell a story.

The institute builds on the BCTR’s expanded efforts to teach researchers about translational research. In the past two years, the center launched a popular workshop series, “How to Do Research in Real-World Settings” and a podcast, “Doing Translational Research.”

“We are thrilled to have found an effective forum for providing scholars interested in doing research in real-world settings with skills that come naturally to BCTR-linked faculty and staff,” said Janis Whitlock, a research scientist at BCTR and co-director of its summer institute. “This is the first of what we anticipate will be an annual institute that advances the capacity of scholars to meet real-world needs.”

Attendee Elizabeth Luth is a postdoctoral associate in behavioral geriatrics and palliative medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine. She researches end-of-life care for people with dementia and their caregivers and also how psychosocial factors influence health disparities.

“The [institute] was helpful on so many levels,” Luth said. “I particularly liked the sessions that focused on building effective partnerships, participant recruitment and sharing results with various audiences. The faculty were outstanding and, moreover, available, approachable and engaged for the duration of the institute. The opportunity to connect and network with other researchers in the field was invaluable, both the seasoned researchers from Cornell and the more junior persons, like myself.”

Luth said her biggest lesson from the conference was the importance of creating an authentic connection with collaborators and research participants. “It keeps why we do this type of research – to make a difference in the real world – front and center in our work. If I can forge and sustain that type of connection, the rest will fall into place.”
