Keeping patients informed about their health options

This article gives an overview of tools and strategies to disseminate recommendations to patients. Key factors of success were a dissemination plan written at the start of the recommendation development process, involvement of patients in this development process and the use of a combination of traditional and innovative dissemination tools.”

It concludes that more research is needed into the effectiveness of different dissemination strategies.

Based on an article by K. Schipper et al. (2016) Strategies for disseminating recommendations or guidelines to patients: a systematic review. Implementation Science 11:82 (2016) – with thanks to HIFA for alerting us to this article.
