Overview of Sharing Results
How do I best disseminate findings from my research?
- After concluding data collection and analysis, the research process is not over yet! Now that you have results, you need to share this information with your target audience, and the scholarly community.
- It is important to consider how you want to present your findings, and which platform you will use, before starting research.
- Connecting with other health researchers, attending conferences, and staying up to date with scientific publications are all ways to approach the result dissemination process.
