Share knowledge, learning and expertise

An important final stage in the process of planning and implementing changes to policy and practice is to share what you have learned. 

This will help other people who are planning services to learn from what worked well and what worked less well. 

To do this effectively you should think about

  • who might be interested in or benefit from your learning
  • what you can share with them, e.g. data, recommendations for actions, implementation barriers, facilitators
  • what format is most appropriate for your audience, e.g. a detailed report, a fact sheet, a Q&A session, a story, a case study, a short film.

You can share your learning by

  • telling us about it
  • presenting at a conference
  • delivering training sessions
  • getting involved in a community of practice
  • writing an article for a journal or a newsletter
  • sharing your knowledge through your website and using social media
  • talking to other organisations working in your area either through one-to-one contact or collectively through groups or forums.

You can contact us for support or to share what you have learned.
