Research Uptake, or research utilization, is a consideration throughout the research process. In fact it starts even before the research begins, in the conceptualising and design of the study where stakeholders should ideally be consulted on their needs and expectations.

Once the protocol has been accepted and the research begun it helps to keep stakeholders informed and updated. When the research is complete, beyond publishing in peer reviewed journals, stakeholders should remain involved so that the research can be taken up into policy or practice. And of course the research results can be widely distributed through policy briefs, seminars and roundtables and at conferences.


Research Utilisation toolkit

K4Health located at Johns Hopkins University,have put together a very handy resource for communicators and researchers that brings together a range of useful toolkits for those involved in research uptake. In a blog Trinity Zan outlines some of the key resources available.

Zan and her colleagues worked to develop the K4Health Research Utilization Toolkit. Their aim was to “create a space where international public health researchers, program implementers, and decision makers could find evidence-based information and tools to address their research utilization interests and needs — no matter what term they may use for it!”

"The online toolkit has been envisaged as a resource not just for communication practitioners but also for researchers, policy makers and programme managers"

The online toolkit (link again) has been envisaged as a resource not just for communication practitioners but also for researchers, policy makers and programme managers. Developed for the health sector it is a relevant resource across all sectors and covers areas such as stakeholder engagement and collaborative research, the use of champions, the use of knowledge brokers, and advocacy and communication

You can browse the toolkit, or search for specific resources and resources can be downloaded. The toolkit provides links to resources as well as a detailed summary, date, length and publisher.

The material is organised around the following themes:

  • Terminology
  • Theories & Frameworks
  • Barriers & Challenges
  • Online communities, forums, listserves

Practical Strategies

  • Stakeholder Engagement and Collaborative Research
  • Champions

  • Supporting Scale-up
  • Research Utilisation

Guidance and Tools for Programmes and Policy Makers

  • Overview
  • Involvement in Research
  • Identifying and assessing evidence
  • Evidence Based Decision making

"Amongst some of the key documents identified by  Zan are a  systematic review by Kathryn Oliver, Simon Innvar, Theo Loren, Jenny Woodman and James Thomas, looking at barriers to and facilitators of the use of evidence by policymakers."

Amongst some of the key documents identified by  Zan are a  systematic review by Kathryn Oliver, Simon Innvar, Theo Loren, Jenny Woodman and James Thomas, looking at barriers to and facilitators of the use of evidence by policymakers.

The Research Utilization Planning Tool shows how researchers and policymakers can concretely apply those Research Use concepts to the research process. This will help you to both develop and implement strategies to ensure future utilization or scale up of promising results, and identify concrete research utilization milestones to be inserted into the study/project workplan.

The Policy Impact Toolkit and its accompanying Policy Influence Plan focuses on impact. Evaluation is critical for decision making and the toolkit discusses how to make sure that evaluations are used by the right people in the right way for the right purposes.
