Communicating clearly the findings of evidence syntheses to patients and the public can be challenging, yet possible. Increased health research literacy means a better informed public. Improved dissemination of systematic reviews and other evidence syntheses means the public, clinicians and policymakers can make better decisions based on an overall body of evidence.
The Evidence Synthesis Ireland ‘Communication with the Public’ Mentorship Programme aims to build capacity in communicating the results of evidence syntheses by writing for the public, through a facilitated mentorship programme.
Up to three mentees will receive team-based writing mentorships over a 6 months period from Dr Claire O’Connell, Science Journalist and Communicator, Sarah Chapman and Selena Ryan-Vig, Knowledge Brokers with Cochrane UK and Hon Prof Derek Stewart, OBE, Patient Advocate.
