Translating Research about Domestic and Family Violence into Practice in Australia: Possibilities and Prospects
Tarzia, Laura; Humphreys, Cathy; Hegarty, Kelsey
Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, v13 n4 p709-722 Nov 2017
The volume of research being conducted into domestic and family violence is increasing, yet knowledge translation in this area lags behind other fields such as healthcare. Little is known about how to effectively harness and implement research findings in the "real world," and there continue to be barriers to the use of rigorous research to inform government policy. In this paper, we explore key areas where the translation of domestic and family violence research into practice could be improved in Australia, as well as highlighting the challenges. We then suggest some recommendations for how these might be overcome.
