Protocol - What are the effects of interventions to improve the uptake of evidence from health research into policy in low and middle income countries?

Protocol for a systematic review

Abstract

This is the protocol for a systematic review which will assess the effects of interventions to improve health research uptake into health policy in low and middle income countries. This will include studies to:

  • evaluate the effects in different settings and among different end-user groups, including both positive and negative effects
  • explore the contextual and enabling factors most closely associated with these effects
  • better understand which combination of interventions is associated with optimal evidence-informed decision making outcomes, and whether the combination changes in different settings and among different end-users

The protocol provides background information and details of the methods to be used
