The Translation and Communications Interest Group is comprised of researchers, policymakers, advocates, journalists, consumers, practitioners and others interested in improving the quality of healthcare. The group focuses on practical ways to understand, translate, and communicate research findings to meet the needs of various audiences, including improving the quality of information that informs health policy development. Topics of interest include effective communication, such as understanding how media messages affect knowledge, opinions, and politics, and how research findings can be effectively translated and incorporated into healthcare programs. The Interest Group also seeks to provide members with professional development opportunities to improve communication and translation skills.

Advisory Committee

Each Interest Group (IG) is led by a dedicated group of volunteers who shape the information provided to IG members each year. The Advisory Committee is selected on an annual basis with nominations opening in June of each year. Check out this year’s Translation and Communications IG Advisory Committee.
