Dissemination
Guide of Guides
By: Anneliese Poetz, David Phipps, Stacie Ross
Introduction
Dissemination is an important step in the Co-Produced Pathway to Impact (CPPI) which is the framework adopted by Kids
Brain Health Network NCE that guides the Network’s research to impact processes. As a researcher or graduate student/
trainee you have already engaged in dissemination by publishing your research in peer-reviewed journals and presen-
tations at conferences. While practitioners and policymakers do attend conferences, these events (unless specifically
designed otherwise) are typically for an academic audience and do not guarantee uptake and implementation of your
research. So, how can you plan for dissemination beyond an academic audience, toward increasing the chances your
research will make a difference in practice and policy?
The KT Core sought and reviewed existing dissemination planning resources and distilled them into this annotated
compendium of dissemination planning guides. Whether you are new to Knowledge Translation (KT) or experienced and
successful with planning and delivering dissemination strategies, these resources can provide useful information. We
hope you and your project team will find this guide-of-guides useful for understanding more about how to achieve effective
dissemination. Common among several guides is the blending of integrated KT (iKT) and end-of-grant (dissemination) KT
approaches; iKT is used to build necessary relationships for understanding and responding to stakeholder needs with use-
ful messaging and products, and build trust for successful uptake and implementation. You may wish to begin with the KT
Planning Guide of Guides for developing a comprehensive KT plan that includes iKT and dissemination activities, followed
by using this Dissemination Guide of Guides to plan in more detail for how you will effectively carry out the activities in
your KT plan.
Some of the resources contain checklists and worksheets that you can print and fill in manually. At the end of this re-
source, the KT Core has created a sample dissemination planning worksheet for your convenience (see Appendix A). This
worksheet represents a compilation of the common attributes of dissemination plans reviewed and represented in this
document.
If you are a Kids Brain Health Network researcher or trainee and would like help with your dissemination plan and strate-
gy, please contact the KT Core (apoetz@yorku.ca).

Dissemination Guide of Guides ACCESSIBLE

  • 1. KT - KNOWLEDGE TRANSLATION - GUIDES This guide was developed by Kids Brain Health Network’s KT Core, hosted by York University’s KMb Unit Last updated September 2017 page 1 Dissemination Guide of Guides By: Anneliese Poetz, David Phipps, Stacie Ross Introduction Dissemination is an important step in the Co-Produced Pathway to Impact (CPPI) which is the framework adopted by Kids Brain Health Network NCE that guides the Network’s research to impact processes. As a researcher or graduate student/ trainee you have already engaged in dissemination by publishing your research in peer-reviewed journals and presen- tations at conferences. While practitioners and policymakers do attend conferences, these events (unless specifically designed otherwise) are typically for an academic audience and do not guarantee uptake and implementation of your research. So, how can you plan for dissemination beyond an academic audience, toward increasing the chances your research will make a difference in practice and policy? The KT Core sought and reviewed existing dissemination planning resources and distilled them into this annotated compendium of dissemination planning guides. Whether you are new to Knowledge Translation (KT) or experienced and successful with planning and delivering dissemination strategies, these resources can provide useful information. We hope you and your project team will find this guide-of-guides useful for understanding more about how to achieve effective dissemination. Common among several guides is the blending of integrated KT (iKT) and end-of-grant (dissemination) KT approaches; iKT is used to build necessary relationships for understanding and responding to stakeholder needs with use- ful messaging and products, and build trust for successful uptake and implementation. You may wish to begin with the KT Planning Guide of Guides for developing a comprehensive KT plan that includes iKT and dissemination activities, followed by using this Dissemination Guide of Guides to plan in more detail for how you will effectively carry out the activities in your KT plan. Some of the resources contain checklists and worksheets that you can print and fill in manually. At the end of this re- source, the KT Core has created a sample dissemination planning worksheet for your convenience (see Appendix A). This worksheet represents a compilation of the common attributes of dissemination plans reviewed and represented in this document. If you are a Kids Brain Health Network researcher or trainee and would like help with your dissemination plan and strate- gy, please contact the KT Core (apoetz@yorku.ca).
