This literature review seeks to examine knowledge dissemination interventions (KDIs) implemented in health research and gauge their effectiveness on three kinds of outcomes: (a) knowledge acquisition, (b) changes in attitudes, and (c) changes in practice. MEDLINE and Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature databases from 2006 to 2011 were searched. Nineteen articles were retrieved. Most of the KDIs that were evaluated had a positive impact on knowledge acquisition and changes in attitudes, but a limited one on practice. KDIs are diverse in terms of knowledge, actors, contexts, and dissemination methods. They cannot be readily applicable to other projects.
