Pathway To Policy

Project Overview 

Are you a PhD student, early or mid-career researcher or practitioner researching or working in health promotion or public health? Do you want to see your research inform government and other agency decision making?

Phase 1 of PHAIWA’s exciting new knowledge translation online course Pathway to Policy has now launched. This is a FREE online course which will give you the skills to develop key messages and disseminate more detailed findings via mediums other than traditional methods such as reports and peer reviewed journal articles. The aim is to see your work translated into policy.

What you can expect from Phase 1: 5 module online course; hints & tips, videos, interesting articles, quizzes and activities, and support from PHAIWA –  all designed to enhance your skills to enable your research and findings to inform policy.

Selected participants in Phase 1 will be invited to move onto Phase 2, where you will be linked with a policy actor or decision maker relevant in your field of research or work.

But it’s not to late to get involved! To register your interest or to find out more information please email

Project Update

2018 Research Translation Program Background

PHAIWA is piloting a new knowledge translation project with health promotion and public health researchers and practitioners.  The overall outcome of this project will be to upskill researchers and practitioners on how to add value to robust evidence so that it may be used in a variety of settings, policies and environments. This project will attempt to reduce the long time lag between the release of new evidence and the uptake into policy or regulation. This project is funded by Healthway.
