Developing R2A Guides

Our 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 the products of the CADR Approach to Knowledge Mobilisation.
