Are toolkits using design principles to effectively translate public health evidence into practice?
Public Health Toolkits
Project dates: 2020-2021
The project will conduct a systematic scoping review to understand the use of toolkits in public health and community settings for cancer and chronic disease prevention and control, and develop and apply a rating criterion to determine whether toolkits are abiding by design principles for effective translation. This research will provide evidence to generate the much-needed guidance that will help researchers create translational documents that effectively reach and engage practitioners to translate evidence to practice for cancer and chronic disease prevention and control.
- Identify how toolkits are being operationalized (e.g., purpose, content, intended audience) in public health and community settings for cancer and chronic disease prevention and control.
- Develop and apply rating criteria to assess whether toolkits are using design principles for effective knowledge translation.
