CIHR launches casebooks about Canadians turning research into action

Improving healthcare for newborn babies at risk; reducing workplace injury and illness; shaping community action plans for early childhood development; and helping Canada's minority communities cope with the Tsunami disaster: these and other Canadian stories about transforming research results into action can be found in two casebooks launched today by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).

"These casebooks offer compelling examples of how research evidence gets used in strengthening Canada's health care system and improving the health of Canadians. They also provide a rare glimpse behind the scenes, to show what works, and what doesn't work, in getting research evidence into practical use," said Dr. Morris Barer, Scientific Director of the CIHR Institute of Health Services and Policy Research.

The two knowledge translation casebooks: Moving Population and Public Health Knowledge into Action by the CIHR Institute of Population and Public Health, and the Canadian Population Health Initiative and Evidence in Action, Acting on Evidence by the CIHR Institute of Health Services and Policy Research, were published to help researchers, policy-makers and community members learn from the experiences of others. Compiling this information is an important step to ensure that new knowledge shapes health policy, program delivery and, ultimately, improves the health of Canadians.

"I hope this collection of stories inspires other researchers, policy makers and community members to find new innovative ways to move research into action," said Dr. John Frank, Scientific Director of the CIHR Institute of Population and Public Health. "These examples teach us that research has the biggest impact on improving the health of citizens when it reflects the real needs of communities."
