Disseminating and Using Research Reports.
Overs, Robert P.; Trotter, Ann B.
The authors offer some practical guidelines in four areas of rehabilitation research information dissemination: (1) filing and retrieval problems; (2) level and styles of writing, listing, abstracting, summarizing, and reconceptualizing; (3) profiling the average practitioner-consumers; and (4) leveling attitudinal barriers. Filing and retrieval problems may be alleviated by the use of authorship and publications specifications; multiple indexing, specifying background information; and use of electronic retrieval systems. Research jargon should be translated into English. A need exists for publications which periodically consolidate the information presented in original research reports. The needs and capabilities of the practitioner-consumer should be profiled. The authors suggest five research possibilities to determine the gap between the ideal model and the average professional. Attitudinal barriers, such as lack of motivation, distrust of research findings, and incorporation of new ideas dysfunctional to the agency and the individual, should be eliminated. (WR)
