Share & Manage

Once you’ve found and appraised useful and relevant evidence, we encourage you to share it so it can be stored, retrieved and re-used.

Sharing work means quicker and easier access to relevant evidence (when and where you need it) for policy-makers, commissioners and other health practitioners in the West of England, with the overall aim of improving organisational performance.

Submit information or request evidence summaries

  • Do you have evidence to share with other commissioners across the West of England?
  • Are you interested in finding particular evidence through our sharing service?

Email us at info@nhsevidencetoolkit.net with full contact details and your request.

We are currently developing more information and advice on the ways evidence can be shared and managed between commissioners at a local and national level and welcome your feedback and suggestions to inform these developments.

To support access of new research findings and promote ‘research informed commissioning’ and ‘commissioning informed research’, a Knowledge Mobilisation (KM) initiative is evolving in Bristol. This originated as a small team of academics and commissioning managers (the KM Team – visit their website) co-ordinated by Avon Primary Care Research Collaborative (APCRC) and the University of Bristol and is now expanding to include University of the West of England and embraces other KM-related roles. Refer to the Evidence Culture page for more details of these roles.
