Here we summarise three research papers from a recent issue of Optometry in Practice.

Dissemination of research

Dr Rakhee Shah MCOptom, Dr Amy Sheppard MCOptom

This paper provides an introduction to disseminating clinical research in optometry. The dissemination of research is a key step on the path towards knowledge translation and practice change.

Presenting research at professional conferences and meetings through oral and poster presentations allows for the rapid dissemination of research findings.

Optometrists engaging in clinical or practice-based research should consider publication of their research in peer-reviewed journals to ensure their findings are widely available.

This is the second of two papers guiding optometrists in practice- based research in optometry.
