Core principles for dissemination: Introducing Cochrane’s new Dissemination Checklist

Presenting a Cochrane review in a format in which target users find engaging and helps them understand the findings, is important to support the use of Cochrane evidence in decision making. Whether you are developing a Plain Language Summary, blogshot, podcast, infographic or policy brief, the Dissemination Checklist will help review the core dissemination principles to help make great products for knowledge translation.

This webinar will introduce Cochrane’s new Dissemination Checklist, developed to support people producing (or who want to produce) dissemination products across Cochrane.

The webinar will:

  • Briefly review the items contained within the checklist
  • Identify how the checklist can be used in practice
  • Provide information about further support and resources available to support dissemination.

There will also be time to ask questions about the checklist.
