Rushmer, Rosemary; Shucksmith, Janet – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
In this paper the development of askFuse is used as a case study to illustrate contextual and system barriers to universities providing useful, usable and timely research evidence in response to local practice and policy partners' stated public health research needs. Entrenched systems (research excellence framework, academic career pathways,…

Shaw, Jessica – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
Science can provide empirically-informed strategies and resources to inform and improve policy and practice, though all too often science, policy, and practice operate independently from one another. Research mediators play a critical role by attempting to connect these different worlds. This practice paper presents lessons learned and…

Morton, Sarah; Seditas, Karen – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2018
Barriers to using research in practice are well documented. This paper describes an innovative process developed by the Centre for Research on Families and Relationships to address these barriers. We supported people to define what they needed to know; how existing evidence could help; and how to use evidence in practice. An action-focused…

Oelke, Nelly; Wilhelm, Amanda; Jackson, Karen – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2016
The role of nurses in primary care is poorly understood and many are not working to their full scope of practice. Building on previous research, this knowledge translation (KT) project's aim was to facilitate nurses' capacity to optimise their practice in these settings. A Summit engaging Alberta stakeholders in a deliberative discussion was the…

Coordinated systems are required to ensure evidence-informed practice and evaluation of community-based interventions (CBIs). Knowledge translation and exchange (KTE) strategies show promise, but these require evaluation. This paper describes implementation and evaluation of COOPS, a national KTE platform to support best practice in obesity…

McCabe, Karen Elizabeth; Wallace, Annie; Crosland, Ann – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2015
This paper introduces a model for collaborative working to facilitate knowledge mobilisation in public health. The model has been developed by university researchers who worked collaboratively with public health commissioners and strategic partners to evaluate a portfolio of short-term funded interventions to inform re-commissioning. Within this…

Dwan, Kathryn Madonna; McInnes, Peter; Mazumdar, Soumya – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2015
Researchers are increasingly being asked to demonstrate the impact of their research on policy. Unfortunately, evidence on what works is scarce because it is rarely reported and evaluated. This paper describes a programme of facilitated engagement between knowledge producers and users on topics of joint research and policy interest, and validates…

Evans, David – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2014
The last 20 years have seen significant international shifts towards greater patient and public involvement (PPI) in health research and development (R and D). In England, then first health R and D strategy in 1991 did not mention PPI. Twenty years later, PPI is deeply embedded within the National Institute for Health Research. This article…

Brown, Chris – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2014
This paper examines notions of power in relation to evidence-informed policy making and explores four key areas. First, I outline contemporary conceptualisations of how power operates in society; second, I spotlight the implications of power inequalities for how evidence is used by policy makers (and present the policy "agora"; a…

Sebba, Judy – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2013
The need to justify public expenditure has increased the emphasis on impact of research. Identifying ways to maximise impact is a requirement of research funders and a concern of governments internationally. Researchers are expected to communicate findings clearly, make use of the media and influence politicians and administrators. Through an…

Meagher, Laura; Lyall, Catherine – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2013
Expectations for impacts from research create demand for effective knowledge exchange between academic and non-academic settings. This complex process may be facilitated by "knowledge intermediaries." Learning from evaluation can advance recognition of their diverse roles and enhance these interactive relationships connecting research,…
