||Using Logic Analysis to Evaluate Knowledge Transfer Initiatives
||Groupe de Recherche Interdisciplinaire en Sante
||Brousselle, A. et al. began by explaining the ideas of logic analysis and the Research Collective in relation to primary care. Researchers developed an evaluation framework based on policy development, evaluation use, and knowledge transfer. These factors were then applied to the Research Collective. Finally, this allowed for a revision of the evaluation framework for the transmission of scientific knowledge to a pool of decision-makers. Results highlight factors that favored information utilization from the Collective including, credibility of the information carriers, proximity to decision-makers, and the formulation of concise, attractive summarized messages. Logic analysis was seen to be helpful in evaluating knowledge transfer activities. The authors noted that although there may be strong potential change from an intervention, this does not indicate an actual effect.
