As part of the 'Creative Communication: seminar and workshop series’ Sarah Chapman and Jack Leahy will be talking about their work, which focuses on creative dissemination of Cochrane reviews and other health evidence through social media.
As well as giving an overview of their dissemination work, they will show how the findings of one Cochrane review were shared in multiple formats and the impact of these activities. Through a series of brief activities, you will have a chance to start building a communication plan for your own research.
Sarah Chapman is the Knowledge Broker at Cochrane UK where her work focuses on creative dissemination of Cochrane reviews and other health evidence through social media, including writing and editing the Evidently Cochrane blog. She has a keen interest in exploring ways to share health evidence widely and encourage engagement with it.
