The Sax Institute regularly commissions researchers to conduct rapid reviews of evidence and other evaluations through our Knowledge Exchange program. You can sign up to our Radar database to be notified of upcoming reviews.

The Sax Institute is commissioning a review of evidence around frameworks for disseminating and scaling up successful pilots and innovations in healthcare. Expressions of interest close on 5 June 2017.

The review will address the following questions:

  1. What frameworks and methods for selection, dissemination, transfer and scale-up of successful projects in healthcare have been evaluated for their effectiveness?
  2. Of the frameworks identified in Question one, what elements have been identified as essential for their effectiveness?
  3. From the literature reviewed in Question One, what methods have been found to be effective for identifying suitability of innovations for dissemination, transfer and scale up?

A draft report is required by 21 July 2017 and a final report by 21 August 2017.
