Do-It-Yourself Dissemination Tool Kit

Need help disseminating your research findings?

Fulfilling the responsibility of disseminating your research findings does not have to be an overwhelming task. We have developed the “Do-It-Yourself Dissemination Took Kit” to assist you in fulfilling your responsibility to disseminate your findings to relevant stakeholders, including: 1)  those who may not have access publications, including people with the condition(s) of interest, advocacy groups, program and policy decision makers, funders, and elected officials; and 2) those who could help reach your stakeholders or amplify the findings, namely the media.

The responsibility for dissemination lies with you, the researcher. The “Do It Yourself Dissemination Tool Kit” will help you fulfill your responsibility efficiently and effectively.
