3 © The Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine Supplement foreword The work reported in this supplement provides examples of approaches that have been tried and from which other researchers can learn. They demonstrate that getting research into policy and practice is complex, dynamic and multi-faceted; and a wide range of context and issue specific conceptual and practical approaches have to be used. I hope that the innovative approaches and promising ways forward, presented in these papers, will inspire and motivate others. Professor Christopher Whitty & Dr Sue Kinn

11 © The Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine Learning from the SHHEP process Investing in communications and research uptake matters... Undertaking reflective assessments of the policy relevance of research evidence, its scope and limitations within a particular context and the ethical implications of communicating the research Carrying out strategic scoping of opportunities and levers for influence through analysis of the policy context, actors and processes, including the political or cultural acceptability of research approaches and findings within context and throughout the research cycle ‘embedded’ Assessing the nature of the research evidence and consulting with other key actors on how best to frame it in ways that increase local decision makers’ receptivity. Keeping ccommunications strategies flexible, innovative, jargon free and relevant to research institutions’ objectives to keep them effective. Being aware of the broad range of research impacts and multiple approaches to capturing impact

[…] if they were our partners from the very beginning of that project then they would easily believe its credible.” (Communications Officer, Kenya) “If you do [research] in partnership with government they easily accept the findings and take it up.

Because […] I work a lot with poverty and urban poverty and especially […] in urban slums, I think [in terms] of the rights perspective or the structural inequalities for poor people.” (Researcher, Bangladesh) ‘‘I’m pushy and I think of everything as an opportunity and I don’t shut doors and I keep resisting […] I am always looking for ways [for there to be] something more than just research in a book.

Quite a different skill and I think that's very rarely recognised. A good academic is trained to […] state the […] cautions, the doubts, whereas those are fatal qualities for an advocate who has to simplify, dramatise, exaggerate.” (Researcher, UK) “You know many good researchers don’t make good advocates.
