Strategies to integrate research evidence into policy and system decision-making

By 05/02/2021

The CoLab for Community and Behavioral Health Policy (CoLab) at the University of Washington has launched a short survey that may be relevant to some Research to Action partners. The CoLab will use the findings to elevate the role intermediary organizations play in strengthening evidence-based mental and behavioral health policies. Your participation will inform recommendations about how to strengthen a research agenda that provides actionable information to organizations conducting evidence translation work in this area.

Our research team is inviting you to participate in a short survey about common strategies used to integrate research evidence in policy and system decision-making. We are also interested in your perceptions of whether the academic literature on evidence translation helps your organization advance your translational work with policy, systems, and community partners.

Participation will involve completing a short survey (<10 minutes to complete).  For each completed survey, our team will donate $5 to Point Source Youth, a U.S.-based, national nonprofit dedicated to ending youth homelessness. All responses are confidential. Personal information will not be included with survey responses in any databases or in any write ups of the findings. This study was reviewed and approved by the University of Washington Institutional Review Board.

We look forward to learning from you.
