Exploring health researchers' perceptions of policymaking in Argentina: a qualitative study.

Corluka A, Hyder AA, Winch PJ, Segura E - Health Policy Plan (2014)

Bottom Line: For policymakers, national research councils and funders of national health research systems, this article provides a deeper understanding of researchers' perceptions which can help inform and improve programme design when developing interventions to enhance research utilization and develop equitable and rational health policies.For donors and development agencies interested in health research capacity building and achieving development goals, this research demonstrates a need for investment in building research capacity and training health researchers to interact with the public policy 'world' and enhancing research communications and transferability to decision makers.It also highlights an opportunity to invest in implementation research platforms, such as health policy research and analysis institutions.

Conceptualizing health researchers’ working context: using the example of researcher push (van Kammen et al. 2006), and moving outwards from the ‘researchers’ oval, the researcher and/or knowledge products will have to enter into the space occupied by the community of researchers and policymakers. These communities of practice are formal or informal networks, and are found within structures of government departments and civil society organizations which are involved with management and bureaucratic processes comprising the machinery of government. These, in turn, are informed by political governance and executive leadership decisions which steer decision making.

Mentions: Table 1 summarizes the facilitators and barriers to the uptake of research into policy, as noted by the Argentine researchers. They have been organized within a hierarchical structure through which evidence maneuvers to inform policy. As seen in Figure 1, the researcher, and his/her primary function of producing knowledge, is nested within an increasingly complex and broader system: communities of practice, government departments/civil society organizations, bureaucratic processes and political governance and executive leadership.Figure 1
