Rural health researchers and health professional educators alike often conduct sound research and assess novel teaching methodologies. However, these models and the research are largely ineffectual on a macro level if the results are not disseminated to diverse audiences. This presentation will discuss the importance of disseminating your work as well as the various modes of dissemination with special attention paid to the journal publication process. The presenter shares a resource developed through the Rural Health Research Gateway to assist rural health researchers with disseminating their work to diverse audiences.
Following this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Articulate the importance of dissemination and the appropriate modes of dissemination given the desired audience.
- Describe the publication process, how to identify the best journal, and how to develop a writing team (authorship).
- Join the Rural PREP community of practice in rural primary care health professions education and training
In preparation for the webinar, please briefly review the Rural Health Dissemination Toolkit (online or PDF).
