Research translation is the process that transforms research findings into a form that is relevant to practitioners or other audiences. This toolkit supports researchers, helping them with research translation by providing exercises, fillable forms, and templates as well as links to examples and key resources. The short video linked above briefly outlines the rationale behind developing this research translation toolkit.
Each toolkit section guides researchers through a series of steps to prepare specific outputs. Section one, Communication Products, focuses on how to write a factsheet or policy brief. Section two, Stakeholder Analysis, focuses on identifying, prioritizing, and tracking engagement with stakeholders that can be influential in using research to impact programs, policy, and practice in a sector. Section three, Research-to-Action (R2A) Plan, guides readers through the development of a plan designed to accomplish research translation goal(s) and objectives.
Each section may be used independently.
Each section folder includes a guide, accompanying worksheets and examples, a “Readme” file with detailed instructions, and a troubleshooting guide.
