The Center for Health Economics and Policy Offers New Tool to Help Researchers

The Center for Health Economics and Policy (CHEP) would like to help Washington University researchers get policy-focused research circulated to a broader audience through policy briefs.

A newly-created Policy Brief Toolkit from CHEP 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. “Making this work more accessible to a broader audience will maximize its impact.”

CHEP would like to extend the opportunity for the publication of policy briefs to all researchers at WashU.  In addition, CHEP team members are available for technical assistance in the development of policy briefs.

Previously published briefs can be found on the policy briefs page of the CHEP website. For questions or assistance in creating a policy brief, please contact the CHEP team.
