Outputs of research are mainly reports, in a variety of formats for different audiences: web-based materials, conference presentations and articles. Usually, these are the researchers’ products, with different levels of input by research participants, dependant upon the participative methods adopted. Two strands of discourse in relation to research allow for inclusion of other potential outputs for research: service user involvement in research and the notion of the research-informed or aware practitioner. This article focuses upon the experience of using evaluative research projects to generate practitioner and user writing for public dissemination, drawing upon these two themes.
