The Center for Health Economics and Policy (CHEP) is helping Washington University researchers get policy-focused research circulated to a broader audience through policy briefs.
The center’s newly-created Policy Brief Toolkit is designed to help researchers translate research findings into policy briefs, which can be circulated to a broader audience than that of academic journals.
“There is a great deal of policy-relevant work going on at WashU,” says CHEP Co-director Karen Joynt Maddox, MD. “Making this work more accessible to a broader audience will maximize its impact.”
