In follow up to the 6th NIH Meeting on Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health, working group meeting members present some of the key concepts discussed and next steps. Central to their discussion are the key issues for implementation science study design, and the work and opportunities that remain ahead.

This guide gives tips and techniques about storytelling, and explains in plain English why it is a powerful and effective tool.

In this paper, three implementation scientists share a heuristic tool to help investigators determine where their research questions fall in the translational research continuum. They use a “subway model” that envisions a journey to implementation research with stops along the way at efficacy and effectiveness research.

This guide has been developed for health professionals applying for the Translational Research Grants Scheme (TRGS) who may have limited research experience, but may also be useful for more experienced researchers as a structured reminder of the range of issues that will be taken into account in the screening and assessment of proposals.

Contributing to government submission processes can be a valuable way for individuals to have a say on issues they care about. This excellent article by Dr Robyn Gulliver outlines some of the steps you can take to make your submissions powerful.

The policy brief is a widely used type of policy paper produced to support an advocacy campaign.

The International Centre for Policy Advocacy has collaged some excellent guides for how to write these highly impactful documents.
