Interested in disseminating a public health innovation, program or research finding?

Looking for a tool to that can help?

The six-step Dissemination Planning Tool guides the reader through the creation of a dissemination plan. With prompting questions and tables, this easy-to-use handbook helps identify relevant issues needed to develop a comprehensive dissemination workplan.

The guidelines provided in this tool can be used to support the dissemination of public health innovations. The tool is designed to help users think about the processes they would use to disseminate findings or products so that they have "real world" impact in practice.

This planning tool was developed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), a division of the Department of Health and Human Services. More details available on the AHRQ Advances in Patient Safety: From Research to Implementation website.
