Dissemination of Rural Health Research: A Toolkit

interview photoThe Dissemination of Rural Health Research toolkit aims to assist researchers with reaching their target audiences by developing appropriate, timely, accessible, and applicable products. The toolkit includes a description of multiple modes of dissemination including discussion of the purpose of each product, which mode is appropriate given the topic and audience, and how to develop the product. Effective examples are provided where applicable. The included modes of dissemination were identified through collaboration with the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) and feedback from representatives of the national Rural Health Research Centers.
