Pathway to Policy – Free online course

Are you an early-mid career researcher or practitioner? Do you want to see your research inform government and other agency decision making but not sure how to go about it?

You might be interested in registering for PHAIWA’s new free, fully online research translation course – Pathway to Policy.

The aim of the course is to provide researchers and practitioners with the skills to provide key messages and more detailed findings in outputs other than traditional methods such as reports and peer reviewed journal articles. This will involve completing five online courses, assessed by an online quiz.

Topics which will be covered include:

  • Defining Key Messages
  • The Importance of Language
  • Getting your message out there – using Twitter as a form of research dissemination
  • Getting your message out there – press releases, TV & radio
  • Getting your message out there – blogging
  • Introduction of key messages via a policy framework

This online course is Phase 1 of PHAIWA’s broader research translation project. Phase 2 will link selected participants with a policy maker relevant to their area of research.

While examples used in the course will focus on public health research and policy, the course will be relevant to anyone interested in learning how to add value to robust evidence so that it may be used in a variety of settings, policies and environments.
