Authors' objectives:

Like many other HTA groups, BCOHTA has been working to develop a successful dissemination strategy. The goal of the dissemination strategy is to introduce effectiveness evidence, for example, in funding or acquisition decisions, in a format which is preferred by the user of the product and is received at the most opportune time.

Authors' recommendations: An interactive approach to dissemination is optimal. BCOHTA has developed a preliminary strategy based on five key components: 1. One-on-one discussions with leaders 2. Research reports, discussion papers 3. Research publications 4. Newsletters 5. Media coverage.
