Show Summary Details


This chapter outlines key issues of evidence-based theories and frameworks for policy dissemination research, discusses policy intervention design, and specifies potential challenges that may be faced in policy dissemination research. It provides entry points into a rapidly growing and widely dispersed literature that crosses multiple disciplines, including public health, political science, and economics. Because the field of dissemination and implementation research is so new, the “implementation” literature on setting-specific evidence-based interventions is sparse; therefore, the remainder of the chapter focuses instead on policy dissemination research.

Keywords: policy dissemination; dissemination and implementation research; evidence-based theories; policy intervention; health policy
