Bridging the research-practice gap

HiSLAC’s Communications Fellow has published an article on using communications techniques and technologies to maximise the impact of healthcare research.

The article authored by Louise Rowan and Dr Alistair Hewison, Senior lecturer and research lead for Nursing at the University of Birmingham, appears in the April edition of the British Journal of Healthcare Management.

‘Bridging the research-practice gap’ looks at how research messages can be made more accessible by involving a communications professional from an early stage in research projects; it also summarises eight techniques found to be most effective.

Initially developed for NIHR Health Research Collaborations for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (NIHR CLAHRC) Birmingham & Black Country the model is now employed on HiSLAC.

“Harnessing the huge potential of new communication technologies, and traditional journalistic instincts, may be the missing link in knowledge transfer,” say the authors.
