Research-Practice Partnership Toolkit
Share |


The Injury and Violence Prevention Toolkit was created to highlight best practices in bridging the gap between public health research and practice, and to maximize the impact of these entities through facilitating successful partnerships. Development of effective public health interventions relies on research-to-practice and practice-to-research occurring simultaneously, each informing the other as the activity progresses. The toolkit will provide practical, actionable guidance to both researchers and practitioners as they consider how their work can contribute to such an effort.


Each category below is tied to a “lesson learned” through discussions and development of case studies with five Injury Control Research Centers (ICRCs), state health agencies, and community partners. These key elements of success are each described based on examples of injury and violence prevention collaborations, and are supported by a case study detailing the formation of the partnership, the unique strengths that each partner brought to the table, and lessons learned to advise public health entities seeking to form similar partnerships. In addition, a list of useful resources will assist researchers and practitioners as they build on the lessons learned from their peers, encompassing topics such as evaluation, systems thinking, and the stages of collaboration.
