Research To Action Guides

CADR banner

The Centre for Applied Disability Research (CADR) Research To Action Guides are part of an objective to build a comprehensive online collection of disability research and translational resources for the Australian context.

What are the key benefits?

  • The Research to Action Guides are based on the best available local and international evidence, put together by subject matter experts to support research end users to engage with the evidence
  • They focus on priority topics and summarise the findings in ways that make it easier to understand what we know, and what we need to find out
  • Each guide gathers and analyses evidence about what works, and packages that information into an efficient and practical resource

Who is this resource for?

Anyone can access the Research To Action Guides through the CADR website.

The Research to Action Guides are based on the best available research evidence. Their topics are chosen by end users; people using services, their families and carers, disability support services, policy makers and researchers.

Research to Action Guides are part of the CADR Approach to Knowledge Mobilisation. You can find out more about this approach, and other Research To Actions Guides currently being developed, via the CADR website.

NDS established the Centre for Applied Disability Research with the assistance of the NSW Government in 2013, with the core objective to produce and share research and analysis that promotes good policy and service progress.
