This guide can be used as a tool to help you critically think about where projects may fit on the translational research continuum, and with this in mind, how best to refine your research question and methods. The guide provides a number of prompts to help identify the steps you need to take to:

  • Demonstrate that a health service, program or policy innovation works
  • Understand the conditions under which it was successful (or unsuccessful)
  • Where appropriate, identify how to scale up an innovation for greatest impact.

The guide will assist you in refining research questions, and identifying feasible research methods to answer these questions.
