Managers using evidence Managers find it hard to make sense of and apply evidence in their everyday work Studies show that managers tend to make less use of formal research. They value examples and experience of others and local intelligence Evidence does not speak for itself. Having skilled individuals, like public health staff, on the spot to identify, contextualise and interpret a range of relevant research helps managers use evidence when making decisions about systems and services NIHR Dissemination Centre Changing ideas of knowledge transfer PUSH PULL EXCHANGE Knowledge transfer and exchange is collaborative problem-solving between researchers and decision-makers Canadian Health Services Research Foundation

According to the Grading of

Recommendations Assessment, Development, and Evaluation tool, the quality of evidence for mortality was high. Carbapenems, penicillins, and cephalosporins were studied. Patients with variable age, Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation (APACHE) II score, severity of sepsis and renal function were enrolled. Prolonged infusion was associated with lower all-cause mortality than short-term infusion (risk ratio [RR] 070, 95% CI 056087). Heterogeneity was not observed (p=093, I2=0%). The funnel plot and the Egger's test (p=044) showed no evidence of publication bias. NIHR Dissemination Centre

NIHR Dissemination Centre NIHR Dissemination Centre Final thoughts for organisations Ask yourself:

Is it worth disseminating? How does it sit with other evidence? How does it fit with practice/policy context? Who needs to know? Where do they go? Who do they listen to? Pull and partnership more effective than simple `push Research findings most likely to be used and useful when

they are synthesised, contextualised and packaged for the needs of the user NIHR Dissemination Centre and for individual researchers Audience, audience, audience Spend time on the message being true to the science, but audience in mind Power of `enriched output, with context Develop a dissemination plan who, what, how, when
