Academic and professional researchers in the health and medical sciences recognize the task of disseminating information as equal to that of obtaining it; the contributors to this absorbing volume address this problem by offering specific, detailed solutions. Following a broad survey of existing methodologies, the volume advances the implementation model, which serves as the basis for the succeeding works. These exceptional contributors examine not only various means by which information may be shared, but at what stages in the research process (i.e., before or after peer review?)--and with whom. In addition, Sharon Lindenburger's culminating discussion of media involvement in the dissemination process provides both valuable insights and practical suggestions. Upholding the tradition of quality and worth established by earlier works in this series, Disseminating Research / Changing Practice will prove indispensable to researchers and practitioners in the field of primary care. qHere is a book so good that it almost makes up for the deficiencies of all the others. It offers detailed critical discussion of almost every imaginable aspect of research dissemination. . . .I am unaware of any other book that has such a wealth of information on the specific and comparatively ignored area of research dissemination. This is an essential purchase for any nurse or nurse researcher who accepts that disseminating and implementing research is as important as carrying it out in the first place. . . .This is a goldmine of a book.q --Nursing Times AgendaCanadian Medical Association Journal, 124, 869-872. ...
